when derek and i moved to utah back in '04 his parents gave us this couch with a matching chair. my mom gave us the pillows. isn't this couch ugly?
i recently got rid of the chair. yeah, i hated the denim. we used a slip cover for a few years, but eventually it got bad, too. so, finally i started to do something. i finally finished the foot rest i started last year. it's made out of tin cans and foam.
and now for the crowning jewel. my mom came over today and helped me get a lot of this done. when she left all i had left to do was cover the cushions. i love it. it looks so much better. i'm gonna re-cover all the pillows, too, but i was tired after doing the couch so they will have to wait for another day. they will be in the same blue as the foot rest.
