Because buying a new couch can be expensive, justifying a new couch purchase, especially if your old one is still comfortable and functional is hard to do. Try giving your old couch a makeover so it looks good in your home until it’s legitimately time to replace it. Here are 3 ways to bring new life to your old couch.
- An easy way to freshen up the look of a worn-out sofa is to buy or sew new pillows in fun fabrics. If your old sofa came with boring matching pillows, reuse them and cover them with beautiful fabric!
- Replace the legs of your old couch. This is a small but prominent update. Most couch legs screw off so this is an easy way to upgrade the look of your old sofa.
- Invest in a slipcover. Find one that fits your sofa well and reach out to a seamstress to nip and tuck for a more tailored look. If you are handy with a sewing machine, try sewing one yourself.
- Bonus idea: Embellishments! Adding fringe or nail head trim to your existing couch to go from drab to fab using a stapler or fabric glue! This is a great way to customize your couch. Just follow the lines of your couch as you go.
The couch is the focal point of your living room, so you don’t want it sagging and looking old. Instead of shelling out money for a new couch, revitalize your own couch using the options above!
