Home Keeping: Slip Cover For The Couch

Several years ago our neighbors gave us a really nice couch.  The only problem with it was it was blue plaid.  Over the years I've covered it with various things, but never had the budget for a slip cover.

Friday at Christmas Tree Shops I found one.  Perfect colors for my bedroom, too.  The price was an incredible $29.99 for a couch cover!

 Very low light this morning as it is raining.  I had the overhead room light on and the lamp.  The wrinkles are hanging in there, too!

 I'm really happy with the way it looks, too!

It nicely coordinates with my bedding.  Win!

If you look around at photos of my house you will see unfinished trim work, and lots of imperfections.  It's a work in progress.  We love it though, and I don't think that anyone who comes over to spend time here ever notices.

If you are waiting to practice hospitality until your house is 'just so' you may never do it.  My advice is to do what you can then invite people to come over.  People really do love to be asked!

As the Nester says, "It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful."


  1. So true about hospitality and perfection.....
    And what a beautiful match with your bed covers. SO happy with/for you!

  2. Great find!! Christmas Tree Shop is the bomb!!

    I totally agree with your philosophy of hospitality. Don't wait for the perfect time!

  3. I figured out what was blocking me from commenting!!! Wahoo!!! Security setting. I hope this goes through! I love the slipcover! What a perfect combo! I always love your home and seeing what you do!!! I miss being a regular at Creekside Cottage! Wish I could be there with you on your birthday!!!

  4. So true, my house isn't perfect but I welcome friends and family in anyway! Love those colors! Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!
