Well this how-to is kind of a no-brainer really...I bet at some point in your life you've done this.
You may even be doing it right now :)
Sometimes when you see someone else doing it/talking about it, it reminds you how easy it is and perhaps you'll do it again.
So what on earth am I talking about??
Well, I'm talking about instantly updating the decor in your home for little if no money and about two minutes of your time.
Specifically - a chair/couch/sofa.
Maybe something like this.......
that you inherited and love that you just haven't got around to recovering all 10 of those cushions yet :)
(there's 2 x chairs as well!!)
Or maybe you bought a new couch five or so years ago and you don't quite love it as much as you did when you first bought it, but it's still got a lot of mileage left in it.
What do you do?
You raid your linen closet, your mum or grandmas linen closets or you go thrifting
and hopefully find a cool old tablecloth or doona cover or sheet
or a vintage bedspread...
that is just you...
and you spend a good two minutes tucking and flattening and then...
You have a piece of furniture that is a bit more you!!!
Plus you can throw it in the wash, dryer and throw it back on.
This one has had a table cloth tucked over it for an instant update.
It's a fantastic way to try a little color in your home too!
You could even just drape the fabric over the back of the couch/chair or do each cushion in a different color.
The options are endless!!
So off you go now! Check out what's stashed in that linen cupboard of yours and update your couch.
Change is as good as a holiday!!
