Another Conundrum of Life

Why is it when you have absolutely no extra money, and barely enough to pay the bills you have, you get a strong desire to redecorate your house?  First, I decided I wanted to paint the walls because I’m sick of white walls.  Now I’m thinking I need new furniture.  Instead of a sofa we have a futon so I’m thinking it might be best to just change the cover of the futon mattress.  I saw some beautiful sofa slipcovers the other day at one of our local stores (not that I’m actually going to buy anything, mind you) but their selection of futon covers was horrible.  Maybe I could find designer upholstery fabric and have someone make me a custom futon cover?  Any volunteers?
