A Great Cover Up

30 Minutes
Our large sofa, while well made and solid, needed to be neutralized and tie in better with our décor. I removed the bottom cushions and started the draping process for the back cushions (attached to sofa) and to drape down the backside since the back is exposed. The material I used was canvas drop cloths.
Draping canvas drop cloth along back
Here is the backside after draping. I love canvas drop cloth. I washed and dried each one in the washer and dryer prior to using. I used three 9' x 12' - no seams!

I love this brand at the Home Depot. It looks like linen fabric and is the perfect Greige color (gray-beige).
Sibiu is the brand at Home Depot
The pillow covers were purchased at Hobby Lobby with details on my blog.

The time it took to neutralize our sofa = 30 minutes. This does not include wash and dry time of the canvas. By the way, this is NO SEW!

    Gammiemame - I said in the post ( my blog or HT) that I ran out of drop cloths so I used a linen sheet that was a similar color on the cushions until I can get another drop cloth.
