Slip your sofa into something more comfortable (and more stylish!) in order to give it a fresh new look. Slipcovers aren’t as expensive as they used to be (although they’re still not cheap) and they’re available in a huge variety of fabrics and colors. You can have them custom made if you want the perfect fit, or you can buy something in a standard size for a looser fit. And if you have an IKEA sofa you’re in luck – there are a few companies who make slipcovers specifically for IKEA furniture.
This is what it looked like when I arrived. As you can see, it actually had frown lines and wrinkles. What kind of witchy sorcery did I use to create this magical transformation, you ask? A super top-secret, rare fiber found only in every craft store ever. I used Poly-fil, an easy-to-find, cheap (a 10lb box will run you about $30) blend of polyester that has a high tolerance for wear and tear.
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.
