My Shabby White Slipcovered Loveseat

Do you notice anything different?    My loft ladder is gone!    My King popped in as I was trying to cat’s paw the nails in the floor out.    He grabbed the sledgehammer and in four or five thwacks had that ladder torn off!

Granted, I have to go outside and get it whenever I want to go to the loft, but the open space is worth it.   I'm very excited about the new possibilities.

I moved my Martha Stewart Kmart wicker loveseat first.   I bought it ten years ago as a part of a patio set for $200.   I love it here, but I also haven’t needed to go into my china cabinet yet.   I tried it with the chair and table this way, but liked them switched around better.

The white denim slipcover is from my Ikea Ektorp loveseat, which remains in storage as there’s no way I can get it across our bridgeless creek and up the mountain at this time.   I can’t believe how much nicer it looks than the tablecloth I used to have spread over it.   I almost sold all my Ikea living room furniture - boy am I glad I didn't!

The cushions are too big for the wicker loveseat, so I put pillows on.
I actually like them all shabby-sloppy.   Not that it would be easy to sit there.

Just for kicks and giggles I put my antique chandelier on the ground the way Rachel Ashwell does!

The chair is this chippy white fold-up I've had since college.

A tiny space needs 'plastic' furniture ;-).

Eventually, I decided to be a good girl and arrange the pillows nicely.
I can’t wait to play around with it more!

‘Till next time, stay shabby!
