Welcome To Smurfville

Hope you all had a Happy 4th. We did the American thing,  had a BBQ and took the kids to enjoy the fireworks.  It was fun. Prior to the BBQ and Fireworks I had a little project I needed to get done.

My couch is white slip covered. Over the years it looks kind of dingy, not clean. Even though I wrestle with the slipcovers every month to clean and bleach them. I was inspired while on Pinterest to dye the pillows. I was going for a faded , ombre look. I happen to have dyes in the house from my tie dying days.

It was a disaster. I didn't even take pictures. I texted my husband and told him "not a word when you get home". Turquoise dye everywhere. I filled the tub that nobody uses with the water/dye. I forgot why we don't use that tub. IT CLOGS! A full bath of blue water took 8 hours to drain.  AAAH!

(Sorry..that's the dogs tail) At the end of it all I have to say I am happy with the results. Until I can buy the couch of my dreams, this will do. Kind of cool, huh?

What do you think?  My daughter says it looks like Smurfville. Does that make me Smurfette?

Anyway..I picked up these sticks near my mom's house. Not sure yet what I am doing with them . Maybe painting them white, maybe not. Hmmm..maybe BLUE. NOT.

Happy Day All! xoxo
