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.
Choosing a couch can be an arduous process. Even after you narrow down the style and fabric, you still have to consider height. Luckily, low-profile sofas are making a comeback in a big way—and they're ideal for transforming a small room into a cavernous escape. Dress up your living room with one of these low-slung models. You may find swapping out your tall, oversized sofa for these shorter, sleeker versions makes your space feel airy and bright.
If you’ve got a plain Jane sofa and you want it to look more formal a surefire way to do it is to add some nailhead trim. Simply determine the lines of the sofa you want to accent and then nail in the tacks (try to place them at even intervals of roughly ½ inch). Just be sure to choose a solid part of the frame so you’ve got a solid foundation to nail the trim into. And it should go without saying that you cannot do this on a slipcovered piece – only on one that’s upholstered.
