This isn’t a sofa hack per se, but sometimes you can completely update a piece simply by changing what’s around it. Try some new art on the wall over the sofa, some new wallpaper on the wall behind it, or even new side tables and lamps on either side of it. When it's surrounded by different and beautiful things, your sofa might just look a little different and beautiful too!
This is what it looked like when I arrived. As you can see, it actually had frown lines and wrinkles. What kind of witchy sorcery did I use to create this magical transformation, you ask? A super top-secret, rare fiber found only in every craft store ever. I used Poly-fil, an easy-to-find, cheap (a 10lb box will run you about $30) blend of polyester that has a high tolerance for wear and tear.
IKEA furniture tends to be considered more functional than luxe, but this deep gray sofa is undeniably glam. The velvet portion is actually a cover, making it a cinch to keep clean. A tufted seat and two round bolster pillows add an air of sophistication to this sofa, while the mahogany legs keep it grounded.
