Iv’e recovered from the graduation party and have everything back in order again. I’m happy to say my white slipcovers came through the ordeal without a stain or ice cream spill. When I swapped them over before the party I thought to myself….this may be a big mistake, but I did it anyway. The white always looks so clean and fresh and it fit the party color theme.
My home probably looks like the 4th of July a big portion of the time. Red, white, and blue are staple colors in the cabin. I can’t believe we have been in this house for 6 years already and the slipcovered furniture from JCPenney’s still looks like the day I purchased it. That has been a very good investment, normally I would purchase new furniture every 3 years just because I got tired of what we had. Well whoever invented slipcovered furniture was brilliant. When I tire of the color now, I just put on a different slip…..problem solved.
I do wish they would make a true red slip. I have the henna and it’s great for fall but it’s not red it’s more of a burnt orange color. Maybe this winter if I get ambitious enough I will make a red denim set myself (don’t anyone hold your breath on that one).
Now on to the purpose of this post: Everyone have a safe and happy 4th. Enjoy family time, BBQ’s, and fireworks, and don’t forget to be thankful for our independence 🙂
