I wasn't sure about the white slipcovers and yes, I want to beat my dog every time she jumps on the couches with muddy paws, but they actually don't get too dirty. I've washed them once since I've been here and I'm thinking they'll be hitting the washer once a month. Sometimes my heart almost fails, like when I see my nephew with a cup of pomegranate-blueberry juice trying to climb on my couch! Food and drinks stay in the kitchen at my house! Yikes! I lint roller the couches a lot thanks to my black kitty, but it's totally worth it!
I love having a space that is entirely my own! I've always done my own thing when it comes to decorating my house, but it's kind of nice to be single and not have someone whine or make snide remarks about anything. This place is 100% mine! Of course, with that comes the fact that I'm doing all the work myself or with anyone I can wrangle in to help me. I guess nothing is ever really win-win... but I'm really enjoying my house and my life.
