5 DIY Decorating Projects
Give Your Sofa a New LookYour favorite sofa is having a midlife crisis: It's not worth reupholstering, but it's not ready for the junkyard, either. A premade slipcover is just the thing to see it through. Sure Fit's cotton-duck slipcover ($60, surefit.com) will look good on any couch, with a fit that keeps the cover taut and in place.
Tips for a Tight Fit
- Use a wooden spoon or a spatula to work the fabric deep into the couch's crevices.
- If the arms of a chair or sofa are too narrow, beef them up with foam quilting or comforter batting (available at most fabric stores).
- To keep a slipcover from sliding out of place on a leather couch, lay nonslip carpet padding on the seat cushions.
