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.

  8. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

  9. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  11. I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing problems
    with your blog. It appears like some of the
    written text in your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and
    let me know if this is happening to them too? This may be
    a issue with my browser because I’ve had this happen before.
    Many thanks
