Jean lounge revamp

Ever had an idea you just had to act on? I have been thinking about covering a lounge in denim jeans forever and after Casper took to the back of mine with bleach (as well as previously vomited, peed and picked his nose on it) I decided it was time to give it a go!

I collected ALOT of jeans....and started cutting

Here is a before picture of the lounge, with the bleach toting menace. After I took these photos I thought it actually looked quite nice, I had to assure myself it was a festy mess that needed sorting, (the lounge not the boy)....

and the bleach.....
What started out as a great idea, turned into a time consuming nightmare! but I had to persist. In order to cover the lounge I had to cut it up a bit, so there was no giving up and returning to what was really a perfectly OK good lounge (except for the bleach, pee, etc....)

Finally, a finished product.....

This ones next, it has great bones and was given to me by a friend. I think I am going to do something with velvet.....


  1. AWESOME! And it has pockets for remotes! Love it.

  2. Very cool! I would love for you to share this or any of your great ideas at the link party going on now (and every Saturday through Tuesday) at 'Or so she says ...' Hope to see you there!

  3. Wow, this is a great idea! They look wonderful. I just purchased new furniture with removable blue jeans fabric slipcovers and love them. The pets are no longer banned from sitting with us as the slipcovers just wash up like a dream. Great look!
