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.
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.
If you have many items to sell, a garage sale can be a good place to sell your couch, since such sales usually draw a good crowd of people looking for exactly this kind of bargain. Consider placing your used couch in a church, community center, or school rummage sale. Your participation might involve little more than hauling it there, which eliminates any worry about organizing a sale on your own. Consider this if your sofa happens to be the only item you need to sell.
