After we moved into our new home last fall, we bought a beautiful sofa sleeper for the guest room. You know…for when the kids come and visit. 😉 It is so comfy and although the garnet red micro suede corduroy intrigued me, I felt my future plans were to accent it beach style, so I chose the only other available shade, a coffee brown sofa. If you’ve seen my Pinterest or read any of my nail blog, you know I’m all about the beach.
I’m sure you’ve seen a myriad of tutorials and Pinterest posts of DIYs for re-covering pillows. So many methods, so little time! LOL Here is my method. Buying heavy cotton fabric by Waverly (at Walmart), $3.97/yd, my cost for recovering two pillows came to only $5.67. I found some gorgeous buttons to finish the look, $2 ea. Not cheap, but I figured since it was so inexpensive for fabric, I could splurge on just the right button accents! 😉 I’m not a seamstress and these photos are just to give you an idea how to recover a pillow with nearly 0 needlework! Let’s take a look.
You know how exciting it is to pick out a brand new sofa, then you get it home and they all (ALL) come with the ugliest accent pillows? Yeah. You know what I’m talking about. Seriously! Why do furniture manufacturers go to all that trouble to create beautiful pieces, then choose hideous pillows to finish the look? Every. Single. Time! Here is how I fixed it. Sorry, just phone snaps here but you’ll get the idea.

I’ve been working on several projects since our move. I’ve taken a few images on some of them, which I posted to my Pinterest page. So since I’ve been doing some DIY projects, I figured why not share them here on my WordPress home. Check here occasionally for my new projects, from distressing new(ish) furniture to older pieces in need of some love. Also, any other repurposing of objects that are just too boring. 😉
Thanks so much for reading and be sure to check out and “Pin” my other projects if they interest you! Comment and if you have suggestions to make my life easier on any projects, I heartily welcome them.

As California natives currently living in the Midwest, we have grown to appreciate warmer climates. Islands, beaches, the sea air...we sure miss it! Of course, after experiencing the white sand and clear waters of Florida, we have found a new coast to love. After traveling to the Bahamas, Hawaii and the Caribbean, we knew we wanted vacation property right on the beach, but something closer and more affordable for our guests. That is why we chose the Emerald coast of Florida.
Why the Owner Chose Pinnacle Port
Randy and I love the beach and wanted others share the experience with others. Being on the ground floor and being able to access the beach right out the back door is great! Families with children as well as senior adults appreciate not having to climb stairs, fear balconies or dealing with elevators. Our resort is very out of the way and everything you need is right here. The private uncrowded beach is one of the biggest reasons we chose our condo at Pinnacle Port, a gated resort on the quiet west end of Panama City Beach.
The Unique Benefits of this Condo
Being right on the ground floor and walking right out onto the beach is awesome! Truly a rare find in Panama City Beach, and so affordable for most budgets. We love being able to park our car right out front and no stairs or elevators. Our guarded/gated property is unique in that it is nestled between Lake Powell and the Gulf. Both on our property! Our quiet little corner is just that...QUIET! We love watching the dolphins play as we drink our coffee on the patio in the mornings. Did I mention "with our feet in the sand"? It's great to not have to carry bags and gear to the beach, because we are right there, on the beach anyway!
