Quick and Easy Fix for Sagging Sofa Cushions


I made a big sofa purchase for our small living room about 13 years ago, spending more than I ever thought I would on a piece of furniture. It's held up well after years of use but was starting to look and feel it's age. The cushions were sagging and felt uncomfortable after sitting on them for a period of time.

Instead of investing in a new sofa, I decided that I would buy precut foam and fix the cushions myself.

How did I get that thick piece of foam into the cushion cover? It turns out there's a super easy and fast way to get it into the cushion cover and all it requires is painter's plastic and a vacuum.

It literally takes a few minutes and the new foam is in your cover.

Voila! A new cushion that looks like it was professionally done and a sofa that looks as good as new.

    This is a great way to get the cushion in. I have struggled with putting foam in cushion many times. This is so much better!! Thank you so much
