Outdoor Sofa Makeover

Patio furniture makeover

Our patio makeover is finally finished! Seriously, it’s so hard to work on a space when it has rained everyday for 3 weeks straight here in NC all after a tropical storm came through our area. That being said, it was a beautiful 4th of July weekend & we got to put the finishing touches on our back patio this past weekend…finally! I will be showing you the whole space very soon, but for now I just wanted to show you a few details of the space starting with the outdoor sofa that we re-did for the space. Our goal for the space was to thrift, re-use, & recycle most of the items that we used in the back patio space. This couch was no exception & was purchased at our local thrift store for less than $30. Our thrifted outdoor sofa makeover was the first step in styling this space. It’s a lovely solid piece of furniture that just needed some love. I loved the shape & all of the foam was in perfect condition, which is a definite plus!

Ok. Maybe a lot of love. & look at that crazy grass haha, I believe it was actually raining when I took the “before” photo too. I used some satin black spray paint to touch up the entire sofa. Remember {these} DIY placemat pillows I made recently? Well I bought the matching tablecloth not knowing what I was going to use it for at the time. I’m so glad I did because I used it to cover the bottom cushions of this piece. That way it’s easy to remove and wash when needed. for the back cushions I simply used standard sized pillows covered in burlap. All of the accent pillows I had lying around our house not being used.

  2. Love your new outdoor space. I have a question about the fabric covering the bottom of the couch. I’m wondering how you finished it since you mention that it is easy to remove for washing. Is it just tucked?

    Hello,
    I am also wondering how you used a table cloth to cover this? I have the exact same sofa and I love this idea!! I would love to do this. I seen a lot of post on how to cover the 3 seperate cushions, but not to cover it as 1 piece and be able to remove it. Pl ease me let know! Your patio looks beautiful, I am using your article to re-do mine!

    Thanks!

    Hello! Love the patio pics! I have a quick question…where did you find your canopy? We are thinking of getting one and I really like yours! :)

  6. I do trust all the ideas you’ve presented for your post.

    They are very convincing and will certainly work. Nonetheless, the
    posts are too short for beginners. May just you please extend them a little from subsequent time?
    Thank you for the post.
