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.

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.

The craftsman connects each spring to the adjoining one with a strong twine. The twine passes front to back, side to side and then diagonally in both directions, thus tying each spring securely. Another method is sinuous spring construction. Sinuous springs are “S”-shaped and run from the front of the seat to the back. These springs are supported by additional wires that cross from side to side. This also makes for a strong seat, and it might be the preferred option in a sleeker style or smaller frame because it requires less space.

I love the drama of the black wall and the way it makes the newly brown couch pop almost as if it‘s orange. I will always love fussy furniture painted in a solid color, and that glossy black coffee table is one of the best versions out there. The rug is a fabulous anchor to a primarily black-and-white room. The molded chair is the perfect combination of black, white, and wood, and it enhances the mid-century modern appeal of the sofa.
