Our couch — a third-hand leather thing that we got free on Craigslist — is getting a little grumpy. More specifically, the leather on the cushions has gotten a little old and cracked. I’ve seen pictures of chairs and sofas seats that had been reupholstered with Hudson’s Bay Point blankets and I like the look. Unfortunately, point blankets aren’t easy to come by and I’d rather use the ones I have for their intended use. So I’m using an old Mexican blanket instead. At the moment, I’ve just wrapped the serape around the cushions. It’s bright and colourful and, as you can see, has the Ronnie James Dio seal of approval.
