I successfully cleaned the couch and it's sitting in the garage now, waiting for its new home. I just open the garage door and it's my favorite place to sit while I watch the boys ride bikes in front of our row of garages. We are the only ones in our building who actually park in the garage (or we did until the couch took residence there), so it's a fairly good spot for the boys to turn circles.
I decided to drape some of the fabrics over the couch that I'm thinking about using for other projects - my new inspiration board, I guess. I'm super excited about keeping my favorite pillow from that last set that I made. I think I'll move the other two to my bed, but the big red vintage print has to stay out in the living room and I think I'll make it work.
Actually, the great thing is that most of these fabrics are thrifted - things that I already had, or things that I've found since we decided to move - really, everything is from the thrift store except for the Amy Butler there and the Kaufman pears. The light teal is a wool fabric that I will use for some pillows or maybe some sort of rug. The houndstooth in the back right there is also a wool that I picked up over a year ago and just happens to be the exact same colors as the couch.
