I started with two cushions (bottom and back). I took the cushions off and washed the covers. I was surprised to see that the bottom had a cover of down feathers. Problem is the feathers were all gathered at the sides. I fluffed and shiften a lot of feathers but haven't decided how to proceed with the bottoms. I may need to remove the feather layer because of bunching and get something else.
The back was easy, opened a box of poly-fil and stuffed them.
We enjoyed watching the poly-fil expand out of the box, cheap entertainment.
I had the kids get to work with cleaning under the couch. Most of the stuff is theirs.
They said that they were finished until I picked up a piece of sectional.....
Our take for the day.
I decided to take the carpet out. It smelled like dog. I bought a new carpet cleaner but felt that it was futile to clean at this time. All this rain means wet dog. Wet dog means my carpet smells like a wet dog. It took 5 kids to move the carpet to the garage for storage.
Stuffed back. A huge improvement.
Stuffed back and fluffed bottom with some stuffing in the corners.
I only show this side because this the only part that got finished. I think that this is going to be a slow process. I had a friend ask me why my walls in here are beige. No color! I tried several different colors but none of them looked good against the red brick. I do need to repaint in here, I might try some color again. I also need to do something with the blinds. They needs cleaning but there are so many of them! How do you clean your blinds?
