Simone and Bubo says "hi!"

Simone won our last contest with her heartfelt story of Bubo, the abandoned kitten and the need for a new slipcover. I contacted her recently for an update and to see how her sofa (and Bubo) is doing.

With her prize, $500 to spend at, she’s changed her old sofa from this …

to this …

Camera shy Bubo

Simone tells me, “I’ve finally gotten a chance to take pictures of my beauuutiful new slipcover! I tried to get Bubo in the pics with the couch — but I’d just used the vacuum cleaner and he was hiding on top of my Expedit bookcase!

Thanks again for this wonderful contest, and for helping my new apartment look so good!”

    Nice. I didn’t know a company like Bemz existed. I’ve been looking into slip covers for an old IKEA sofa. Thanks :)
