The Green Thing got a paint job. If you read that link, you'll see that I've probably come to terms with my dear mother's death a little more in the past 5 years since I painted it white. But I'm still calling it the Green Thing. I think I chose white because I'm yearning for simplicity in my home these days. And Mom painted everything white that wasn't nailed down, so there's that.
I whipped up a new cover for it out of this yellow toile that I purchased ages ago at Goodwill. I was looking through my stash and suddenly realized that it would be great with the new color-scheme developing (slowly) in the family room.
It takes about 5 minutes to fold over the fabric, overlapping it in the back, and sew 2 straight seems. Turn it right side out and stuff it with a pillow. I covered 2 other ratty pillows and was thrilled with my accomplishment for the day!
