I like being creative in my spare time, not that I get much time to myself, but when I do, I make use of it even if it means doing something small around the house.
A few months ago, we bought a second hand two seater fabric couch on Gumtree Melbourne. It was the perfect couch and I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the ad said ‘Freedom couch $60′. Freedom! Freedom is one of my favourite furniture stores in Melbourne, but with a price tag of course. Our first couch we bought was from Freedom when they had a massive sale and I vouch its one of my best purchases. If (God forbid) something would happen to my house, I’d drag the couch out with me-darn I love that thing! (pictured above)
So back to this Gumtree couch, its a beigy grey colour and came with 2 matching cushions (seriously, who would put cushions on a sofa in the exact same colour and fabric?!!) Anyhoo, I gave it a good scrub & wash, got out a needle & a thread and started sewing my love on…And of course, filled it with a new fluffier cushion insert!
