How to update a couch

I decided the couch needed some improvement. It's old, kinda scratchy, and well, just not very pretty. Mom hasn't wanted to deal with it, so it was up to me to help her see that the interior decor needed updating. I got Zsa Zsa the cat in on the plan. She took care of the arms and I took care of the body of the couch. Nice handy work, right? Mom was none too pleased.

But my plan worked. After some duct tape and a shopping trip, look at the "new" and improved couch. I was hoping for a completely new one, but this slip cover will do just fine for now. It's soft and clean and well, looks MUCH better! 

If I could pat myself on the back, I would.



  1. oh my goodness, you and yuki would get along just great ripping holes in stuff. ;)

  2. My Tessie destroyed both the couches within her first week of being adopted. I considered sending her tush back to the shelter! Thank goodness we don't have nice furniture so it wasn't a huge deal and it taught me that doggies need to be crated until they learn inside manners. :)

  3. This is the first thing I've ever destroyed since being with my mom...and it's because that couch was UGLY (and I was probably bored!)

  4. ...though i could probably learn some better manners ;)
