3 Easy Steps to Beautify Your Old Couch

Our couch is horrible! I have been in a love-hate relationship with this old thing. On one hand, it’s our family cuddle space. On the other, it’s not ergonomically friendly. It makes you slouch. Which depresses me. I like to sit up and proper-like. Its also brown. We’ll leave it at that. We hope to replace it with something like this (Ikea is great for so many things!), but this is how I made it work. For now.


Step 1

Cover it! I found this great white quilt at a thrift store named Revivals in Hillcrest for just $8!


I folded it in a triangle to extend its length across the couch. I love Pythagorus!

Step 2

Combine your favorite throws and wrap them with your favorite ribbons. Or scarves. So easy. I can’t even explain how easy this is. And it took my 29 seconds. I timed myself! Different textures and color coordination safe great. Here’s a great link if you need help with learning about color.

I also love how convertible this idea is. Pillows during the day. Unwrap and blankets at night! So perfect! And it only takes 29 seconds! Even better.



Step 3

Add your family. Get comfortable. Takes a few pictures for your new blog you just started ( wasn’t that on your New Years Resolution list? 😉 ). Prima wanted a solo shot.

Enjoy your creative discoveries and stick to all your New Years Goals! Remember to “Start Small,” and to always try new things!!

    very creative and cheap. I like cheap when it comes to home decorating, but yet it looks expensive!
