Money doesn't grow on trees, am I right? And let's be frank…; Couches can be expensive, so it's not something you can just purchase every few years. Sorustic pillow covers, it's super important to keep the couch you have looking new as long as possible. So, if your couch is looking tired (like mine was), I am here to teach you how to make an old couch look new again AND how to protect it so that it stays that way for as long as possible.

A bit of background, my love seat was purchased at Ikea, so it wasn't super expensive, but it was enough cash that I want to hold onto this thing for as long as we possibly can. We chose a really pretty “;tweedy”; fabric without realizing the downside to that. The fabric pills. A lot. Ugggghhhh. Pills on fabric can make a really nice piece of furniture look really awful. But fear not, you can make your old couch look new by removingall the pills from your couch or other furniture upholstery in about 10 minutes. It's SO easy. And protecting the fabric so it continues to look great is even easier. Pinky promise. This post contains some affiliate links for your convenience. Click here for my full disclosure policy.

You do want to make sure your upholstery is CLEAN before you start. If your couch is slipcovered, like ours, remove your slipcovers and wash them at home (if you can) or have them dry cleaned (if required). I'll confess to you that ours SAYS it was dry clean only, but we totally washed them at home and everything was fine. We did NOT dry them in the dryer. If your upholstery is permanent, use a high quality fabric cleaner and clean it as best you can.

Then, just follow the steps in the video below (it will play after a brief ad) and your couch will look new AND will be protected so it will last for years to come.

Just as its name implies, the lounge in a home is the best place to just lounge around in, to relax with family and friends in a very casual atmosphere. The area should then be as welcoming, as cosy and as casual as possible without necessarily losing out on stylish interior design elements. After all, partying with family and friends also means doing so in great style.
