From Throwaway Couch to Comfy New One

Don't throw away furniture repurpose and be surprised.
This couch was peeling faux leather quicker than a one arm fiddle player with flees. What to do?? Throw it away? Fill up the landfill? No money for a new one.
Asked on home talk for suggestions and found someone who could reasonably make new pillow covers and a few new pillows to coordinate. Material was 70%off and 3 for 1. So in total it was very reasonable here in Canada to do this whole job under $430. A new couch would we well over $2000. So happy with the results and I will enjoy it more because it's cozier in the basement. So happy I didn't have to throw away.

    I found the fabric at Fabricland. If you get a membership I think you get all fabric at 50% off. Always check out the discount area that's where I got the fabric for the cushions. Good luck.
