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 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!
And that sofa—it looks amazing. The unexpected color has a nice rosiness to it; we see more cool- and gray-toned browns these days so it´s a nice change. Meri Defferrari—@merideffe2 on Instagram—is an artist in Argentina who had the confidence and vision needed to dive into painting a major piece like this, and that boldness has paid off quite handsomely.
