When it comes to buying “gently used”, second-hand or even vintage furniture, there’s always those pieces that stretch the imagination of whether they can be salvaged into something really posh or simply acceptable enough to place in our homes. When I saw this “before & after” sofa project, my upcycling heart went pitter-patter! See for yourself how this once homely sofa was fabulously transformed. You never know…you might be inspired to make over something of your own.
