If your sofa is looking saggy there’s a good chance you can make it look better by stuffing the cushions. Now don’t just shove a bunch of cotton batting in there because it will result in a lumpy cushion. Instead, take off the cover (most sofas these days have removable covers) and wrap the cushion in a layer or two of quilt batting or foam wrap. If you find it shifts around a bit secure it using a spray adhesive. And if you find there are still a few saggy spots, now is the time to fill them with extra pieces of cotton batting. Easy peasy.
If you'd like to recreate this look exactly, the paint used was Montana Colors' Greyhound Brown, but you could also use spray paint specially formulated for painting vinyl (pleather) and fabric. I know from experience that it works great. And if any of you do start spray painting your furniture, be sure to tell us all about it! Meri leaves us with these wise words of advice that apply to projects large and small: "Wear a mask when you spray paint."
