The hilarious thing about that couch is that my parents decided to wrap it up in a tarp before driving it across multiple states in case it rained, but their tarp was sitting under a small mountain of stuff that they were in no mood whatsoever to move, so they just went out and bought a new one.
Only my dad vastly, vastly overestimated the size of said couch. Like, went out and purchased a 20 x 40 foot tarp overestimated.
Once the couch was unwrapped (seriously by my mom’s estimation the tarp would have gone all the way around it at least 7 times) it took my dad like 20 minutes to get the tarp refolded again. I shit you not, even compressed and wrapped up in like 15 bungee cords this thing is the size of a small sheep.
What did you decide to cover it in????
Haven’t quite decided yet! Going to hit up the upholstery fabric places here in town to check out their stock IRL and do some texture feel tests. Thinking I’ll be going for a pewter/chocolate brown, with that green-on-white jungle print with the leopards brought in for color (I looked at the pattern again and the scale/repeat on it is HUGE, too so way more leopard than I can commit too for the whole of the sofa itself).
ETA: Also since I’m getting it stripped down to the frame basically I can redo the button and tucking pattern along the cushion/back HOWEVER I WANT, so that’s another exciting thing to think about.
my couch has ARRIVED
just watched concrete try and fail to fit into this napkin holder for the past five minutes, now he’s just been standing with his front paws in it looking mad and tired
