This is our living room sofa ...
Sad, right? I would love to get a new one but its not in our plans right now.
I once read a magazine article about a mom who said that white slipcovers were so great because you could take them off and wash them no matter what your kids got on them. I thought, "That is so true." Mr. T and I decided to buy a new sofa considering the state of our current one but never got around to it. In the meantime, I got a white slipcover on eBay and made some simple pillows for the back of the sofa.
Not bad right? Good enough until we got around to buying a new sofa. Well, the magazine article lady clearly didn't have a child like The Wild One. One day, it was very quiet in my house. You know what that means if you have kids. I RAN into the other room and found The Wild One scribbling on my white slipcover with a gel pen she'd managed to snag from my drawer that I'd left unlocked for literally a few seconds. Try as I might with every Martha Stewart cleaning recipe there is, the ink never came out.
