I put off doing anything in the house until the pups outgrew their puppy behaviors. I am still hoping the end is near. But it seems to be an uphill struggle to keep anything nice from being undone.
We went to IKEA to get these Ektorp chairs to match our couch, and came home with Poangs instead. We're glad we did. Vanilla leather and no skirts to attract the leg-lifting dogs (bad doggies!) We did get some furry pelts to add a bit of cushy luxury to the seating. Yum.
But I have to cover the Ektorp couch with sheets to keep it clean. While the slipcover is washable, I don't want to do that load daily. That 'carpet' is a plastic outdoor version. Guess why?
While this may sound wasteful (and it is) I can't let that keep me from trying something else. Facing the fact that I can't buy anything that stays nice forever, is my boulder to push uphill.
