My dog fell in love with an ugly old bean bag. The bright red color just didn't work in the living room. I planned...to recover it. The cover had to be removable for washing.

Ikea shocked me with a five dollar solution! visit my blog for to read more about it: http://www.flusteredmom.com/1/post/2015/02/hiding-messes-dog-bed-transformation.html I'd love to hear about your own inexpensive rescues!
