Couch Cleaned and Scrub, Like New Again

Last week I spent a few hours scrubbing my amber gold couch. I didn't realized how dirty it was until the water was really brown. I mixed 4 small squirts of dawn dish soap, 1/2 cup of white vinegar and mixed well in a bucket filled half way with water. Scrub with a plastic scrub brush and rinse with a clean rag with a mixture of water and fabric softener.

After cleaning your furniture you will see that they look like new again. I put a rotating fan to dry the couch and I put the cushions on the balcony to dry for 4 hours. By the next day my couch was dry. Take a look at my photos.

before the couch was really dirty and the bottom lapel was full of shoe tar and grease.

really dirty

You may not be able to see the stains but they are there.

now the couch is clean and nice, look at how nice the fabric looks...BRIGHTER and the shoe tar and grease stains are gone.

now those are nice clean cushions looked really dirty even from afar

but now it looks even greater from afar and the cream chair was also scrubbed a few weeks before

Old Painting With a New Look

I spent this weekend painting over an old painting I had in my closet for the past 3 years and never used. I painted over it with the colors I have in my kitchen. So take a look at my painting and I must admit it looks great now that it matches my kitchen colors.

New Drapes at a Fabulous Price

I was at Kohl's this week and in their drapery dept. I spotted a set of drapes for my bedroom window that I fell in love with...unfortunately I did not want to spend $60.00 dollars for 1 panel and I needed 2 panels; so I didn't get them. Then I went to Walmart to pick up a few grocery items and I thought I'd look at what they have in drapes; to my surprise the same exact drapes Kohl's had for $60 dollars a panel were at Walmart for $14,95 for the set of two. Well I grabbed them and off I went. To top it off a large thrift store here in town is going out of business this week and they had a day on which you fill a bag for $2 dollar. I found the sheers there to match the new drapes and I got 8 pairs of cream sheers for $2 dollars. I washed my drapes and sheers, pressed them and now they look fabulous in my bedroom for the upcoming holidays. I also found the red pillow in the center of my bed at Walmart also. I am ecstatic, now my bedroom looks lovely.

It sure enhances my office space
