Well when you get a new home it seems that you spend all of your money on the home and then fill it with used stuff. It would not be so bad if the couch my aunt gave me was not kept in a shed with birds using it as a toilet. So I broke down and paid the cleaners to come out and clean it. So very glad I did that! Then I thought you know I have always wanted a red couch and this is a good way to test it out- with a slip cover. So hear it is, not bad at all huh?
