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!
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
