Yes, it’s true! You can give your sofa a subtle but effective new look by switching out the legs. Most sofas sold these days are not made of a single frame construction. In many cases the sofa seats, backs and arms are manufactured as one piece and then the legs are screwed in after. So if you want to make a change it’s really easy. Can’t find new legs you like? Simply spray paint the old ones to a new color and you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the difference.
Wrap the foam with multiple layers of batting. A small amount of spray adhesive applied to the foam can help the batting stick to it so it stays in place once you put the covers back on. If possible, have someone help you put the covers back on the cushions. All those layers of batting make it a tight fit- but that is what you're looking for, so ask someone to lend a hand to make your job less painful.
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.
