Couch cushions

Nancy GrammFlipturn2dogal


My cushions are too high , can't reach the floor with my feet. How can I "soften" the foam without replacement?

    Rather than looking at the couch cushions, flip the couch over and remove the legs. Most of the time they are just screwed on. If that makes them too low, shorten the legs with a saw.

    Sal85902 has a smart idea!
    If you try to take out any foam out of the cushions or manipulate the foam without resewing the covers, then the risk is that the fabric covering will not longer fit, and the couch will no longer look good.

    Don't you hate when your feet dangle? I swear next time around I'm gonna bargain with the Creator, maybe give up some of my good looks for longer legs! 😉 Speaking of legs, Sal85902 gave you a perfect answer, so long as your couch has them. Not all do. Let us know if that doesn't work for you.
