Before - Rag-Tag Furniture

Introduction: Before - Rag-Tag Furniture

"Hand-Me-Down" describes my living room.  I got my furniture 10 years ago from a friend-of-a-friend and I've never had the opportunity to replace it.  Covering it doesn't help; it's old and out dated.  I think that I have the most uncomfortable furniture in the world.

I want to create a space that is comfortable, cozy, and inviting.  I want a space that works together and is simple and functional.

    How goes your decor? I use sheets for curtains and furniture throws, blue and white for summer and fuchsia for winter. If you're stuck with uncomfortable couches, replace cushions with a slab of foam wrapped in a fitted sheet. A couple of bright throw rugs would help. The saggy curtains may be depressing you. If you don't like bright colors, use muted colors but color would cheer the room up. Oh, and I use bed pillows in pillowcases on my couches.
