Rambling Over Coffee: Good Morning!!! (updated)

Updated chit chat.

Good Morning coffee friends!

Home from a couple errands and because I'm still procrastinating putting away clean clothes, folding another load of laundry, doing another load of wash, and doing dishes (among other things) I thought I'd hang out online for a bit with some fresh coffee.

This morning I had chit-chatted about using curtains as fabric to cover some couch cushions.

Update:  The couch is an older green couch with roses on the cushions - great shape but ugly pattern. Our daughter put a new gray slipcover over the couch and loveseat but they use giant pillow/cushions as the 'back' of the furniture, and have smaller decorative pillows as well.

We discussed buying more slipcovers to cut up and use as fabric to cover the cushions (so it matches perfectly), but the slipcovers are $95 normally, and $75 on sale - we would need at least 2, if not 3.... so instead, we bought extra packages of the curtains that are being used on the living room window.  This way the curtains will tie in with the couch and loveseat and the gray curtains and slipcovers are very similar shades of gray.  So it will all coordinate and match!

I'll be starting this sewing project either today or tomorrow... I'd like to today but not sure I'll have time.

I've slowly redone most of the main floor of the house to neutral, rustic and 'coastal' influenced decor but the main floor bathroom can't go to a coastal neutral shade because the stone tile is permanent and is dark rustic reds, browns... and the huge pedestal sink and large mirror are more espresso/rubbed bronze-ish so we took out the brushed nickel light fixture, toilet paper holder and faucet and are replacing those with rubbed bronze.  

It will all match for the first time since we moved in... (previous owners replaced the original sink and cabinet with the fancy-dancy pedestal but didn't invest in the matching accessories). (We got the light fixture, faucet, towel bars, toilet paper holder, etc. from Lowes and I got a bronze waste basket from Walmart - but I will link to some options from Amazon too!)

When we 'donated' a lot of our furniture and items to the newlywed couple for their home, I was left with an empty loft area/movie room upstairs.  Ordered a sectional, used a couple cream/beige pillow covers I already owned and added a rustic jute rug.  This morning I bought some fabric to make a center lumbar (long rectangle) decorative pillow... it's added to the sewing list.
