Give that Old Couch New Life: Re-upholstery is the Solution

Do you have a sentimentally irreplaceable sofa/couch that is damaged? Have your kids spilled so many different liquids on your couch that you can’t quite remember what the original color was? Did you get your grandparents’ old hand-me-down couch? Or maybe you’ve just spent a lot of time on your couch and it’s starting to look worn and old. Whatever the case may be, don’t be afraid to give your couch a new look. Reupholstering an old couch is not as terrifying as it may sound.

Find Hidden Treasures: Furniture with Good Bones

If you don’t already have a couch to reupholster, consider checking out garage sales or second-hand sale websites/apps such asCraigslist or OfferUp for an affordable couch with a silhouette that you like. Here’s an example of an older looking couch with a print that may not be the style you’re looking for- but with little bit of imagination you can see the potential of the piece.

So Many Options – Have Fun with Your Creative Style!

Once you find the couch silhouette that you like, your next step is to decide what fabric you want. Fabric shopping can be overwhelming. Would another pattern print look good? What about a solid? Textured or not? What color? So many options and you’re feeling alone and lost- not knowing where to even start.
