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.
My mom was pretty positive there were no zippers to access the seat backs on her sofa, but after a little spelunking she was very surprised to find that, indeed, there were hidden zippers along the bottom back sides. If you can only get to the seat cushion, skip the Poly-fil and just pick up batting. For seat back access only: just Poly-fil.
Before you start, remove your jewelry, especially rings. I almost lost mine in the process! To give yourself room to work on the seat backs, remove all the seat cushions and set them in a clean workspace. Grab a large amount of Poly-fil and begin to shove it up inside the cushion, making sure to position it behind any foam or pillow that may already be in the cushion.
