Finally AFFORDABLE IKEA sofa slipcovers

IKEA Karlstad Footstool Ottoman Free Pattern
I love IKEA. I love to hack IKEA. I also rarely throw away a piece of IKEA furniture just because the slipcover is dingy. Recently IKEA has begun to phase out the Karlstad collection. I guess it's inevitable. All good things must come to an end. But that's ...

Living Room Update

DIY Wingback Tufted Headboard
I bought the materials to make this headboard months ago. So I guess it's only fitting that when I actually put my mind to do it that it only took me a day.  I did work for about 7 hours with a lunch break in between which seems like a marathon project but ...
