|The Pups with their new toy on Christmas|
She was a really good sport about it surprisingly, and the gauze is holding up so far. Well it got me thinking about the durability of furniture. I’m sure those of you with pets or kids have learned a lot about what will and will not work in your home. I’m planning on a new couch for the living room and I am definitely leaning towards a slipcover or something dark. I do love bright white couches though so we’ll have to see if slipcovers win that tug of war. I have removed the carpet in most of my home (I was lucky that i knew there were original hardwoods underneath), and am looking at area rugs too. The fur from a dark and a light colored dog mix to a mucky gray color that shows up on everything, dark or light!! My next project is a painted floor canvas in place of a traditional area rug (There will be a post on that in the near future). It will be much easier to clean, and in the worst case scenario, a lot cheaper to replace if necessary.
