"New" Couch

Would you believe me if I told you I got a brand new couch for thirty-three dollars? If not, good for you. I didn't get a brand new couch for thirty-three dollars. I got an old couch for free, and bought a brand new slipcover for thirty-three dollars, and . . . voila! It's like a brand new couch! I love it!
The couch came from my sister-in-law's garage. She got it from her sister-in-law, who, upon getting a new job across the country, decided to get rid of all her old furniture and buy new stuff. Score! The upholstry was all ripped up (the obvious work of a cat), and the color didn't match my existing furniture.
The slipcover came from Ebay. It is a pretty blue slate color, and so soft! It retails for around sixty-five dollars, but I paid only 24.99 plus shipping. Don't you just love Ebay?
The couch is a little funky. Instead of a regular backrest, it has these huge pillows, which make it a little hard to get the slipcover to fit snugly, but it works.
Here are the before and after photos:
