A sofa makeover -Saggy Sofa begone! This is my favorite sectional sofa. We had it custom made about 12 years ago. It has moved with us through 3 houses and the fabric is in great shape. After all the moves and two children later it was looking all saggy and sad. That is when I had the brilliant idea to fluff up the cushions with Poly-Fil fiber stuffing and give her a makeover. I use polyfil all the time to make pillows so why couldn’t I use it to fluff mine up. I ordered a 10 pound box. I gasped when it arrived, thinking I would have enough to last me years. But the back cushions were very sad and saggy indeed. One of the back pillows was so hard and lumpy that I tossed the entire thing and added all new. It was 100 times better than before. Honestly I did not realize how uncomfortable the sofa had become.
If you look in the picture below you can see the height difference the new fiberfill added. I have a little wooden trunk that sits on the shelf behind the couch. After I added the poly-fil the cushions were about 3 inches taller and happier. No camera trickery. That is how flat they had become.
On my sofa the cushions are attached to the back and the zipper was on the bottom. I had to remove the bottom cushions to fill up the pillows. Each sofa is different. While I had the cushions off I took the time to vacuum. I made a $1.72, found 3 missing socks and a My Little Pony. It was a good day. Nothing gross or scary.
After stuffing them all up and placing the bottom cushions back into the sofa the difference in height was amazing to me.
Next up on my list is to make some pillows for this room. I would love suggestions from you. Please leave an idea or two in the comments.
