Around here, we love coming across ways to get a little more mileage out of our well-loved basics. So when I came across a genius idea about how to revitalize a 6-year-old saggy sofa with a quick trip to the craft store, I just had to try it for myself. My parents‘ poor 15+-year-old overstuffed leather sofa was years past being "overstuffed" and was starting to look really grumpy- like. However sad and grumpy, it´s a much-loved, quality piece of furniture so I was excited to add a few more miles to its already long and generous life.
This beast of a sofa was left behind in an apartment, but it wasn’t quite what the new tenant had in mind. With $20 worth of spray paint, and an enviable abundance of confidence, the tenant gave this old piece a fresh new face. While most of us haven´t made over a whole couch, I´m sure many of us have found random furniture in our homes—and it probably needs at least a little work.
There were many "oohs" and "aahs" from my parents, along with accounts of how much more comfy it felt and how happy they were that they wouldn´t have to think about getting rid of it anytime soon. There was much rejoicing. The two things you need to determine before rushing out to purchase your poly-fil are: a) whether or not the foam in your seat cushions is able to be removed; and b) if there is an access point to the inside of your seat back cushions.
