Ikea Couch Improvement

Before and After: An Easy and Cheap Sofa Transformation

Here's a post from CasaSugar Community member lauren from the Su Casa group:

I recently moved into a new home and along with a new home comes lots of projects! We decided to put our tv in a separate room, so our living is purely for entertaining. So our little den was outfitted with our old Ikea couch, we had the best of intentions of getting something new for the room down the line but on a recent trip to Ikea we found our couch covers were on super sale. Rather than buy a brand new couch for the room, we decided to go the more thrifty route with a new cover, pillows and some extra batting added to the sad looking cushions. For about $100 for everything, the couch was transformed and looks pretty much like new. Here is the before: Keep reading for the after!

Here is the after: I still want to get a couple more fun and colorful pillows but that is the easy part!

Wow, this looks so crisp! What's the material for the new cover? It looks fantastic. Also, side question: did the cushions lose their spring/durability more quickly than you thought they would?
