I went to Bed Bath And Beyond and purchased one slipcover for the sofa not overly hopeful it would work out for me. I had tried the concept once before and it was just plain annoying, never stayed in place and the kids ripped it so it got thrown out. I decided on this "higher end" cover $99 for a loveseat size in dark brown.
Good front and back coverage
I got some pillows from TJ Maxx and Christmas Tree Shop
Here is the couch before
This worked so well that I bought another slipcover for the sofa.
2 new sofas = $220.....Yeaaaaah!
