The Results Are IN!

So, the poll is over and the results are in. When asked which projects you'd like to see me tackle, over the coming weeks you answered:

57% wanted to see me finish the slipcover on my living room sofa. What? You want us to cover this tacky 1970's fabric?!?
19% wanted to see the painted sconces and tray for my bedroom.

Painting and recovering the dining room chairs and making curtains for Rock's room each got 4% of the vote.

3% wanted me to do it all.

And 0% of you voted to make a bedskirt my top priority.

So, I've been working on the slipcover. To be honest, it was my top priority as well. My husband has been helping me with this project (yes, I am lucky enough to have a hubby that can sew!) and we hope to bring you the final project soon. No, this isn't the completed slipcover, but it IS a shot of the recovered pillows (in the same fabric of the future slipcover) on the sofa opposite the one we are working on. Seeing these completedgave my husband a lot of hope.

I have thought about doing this but am overwhelmed by the thought (homeschooling will do that to you :-)
I can't wait to see how you do it!
