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.
Your final product will end up looking really puffy and overstuffed, but the fill will start to settle after a few weeks, so you want to pack it as full as you can. Next, move on to the seat cushions. Remove the cover and set to the side, and vacuum the cushions to get rid of any deteriorating foam.
