If your couch is looking sad, there’s no need to spend hundreds of dollars on a brand new one (unless, of course, you've been looking for an excuse to buy a new couch). For about $50 and some elbow grease, you can make your sofa look brand new again by restuffing its cushions. Stuffed cushions will bring life back into your couch and give your living room a facelift without breaking the bank.
You’ll need to purchase brand new couch cushion covers and consider reupholstering your couch if you’re going for a whole new color scheme in your space. Otherwise, you can remove your cushions from their covers, restuff them so they look nice and plump, and put everything back together again. The whole process is suitable for a beginner DIYer and it only takes a few hours.
Before You Begin
Get up close and personal with your couch before you begin. Inspect it to make sure the foam in the seat cushions is removable and that there are access points to get into all your cushions (each cushion often has a zipper). If there aren’t any, you won’t be able to restuff your couch.
