The Slipcover Couch Blues


If you have ever looked into buying one of these beauties, you also know that they come with a high price tag!

I am in love with the L Shaped one from Ikea

Isn't she lovely....sniff sniff......

Compared to Pottery Barns Version below...this one is a steal at $800

I wouldn't pass up on a regular sofa in the slipcovered fashion if I found one. I have been scouring Craigslist at various times of the day for weeks now....i'm just not fast enough to catch them...they go like hot cakes....I'm convinced the people must sit in front of the screen waiting on new ads to pop up!

Okay, so as I am typing this I am searching hahaha........

and look what I found.....(If you have no sense of imagination or future eye...I am going to ask you to NOT look at this picture....)

Love the shape! All of those HORRIBLE pillows will be gone and some french canvas pillows....huh huh?? What do you think??

The number one reason I would pass on this is white as I want...but its not a removable slipcover that can be cleaned... :(

The number one reason I would....its $200!!! 
oh, and bonus... it's a sleeper sofa! what....
