With our kitchen remodel done, I finally have time to tackle some small projects around our farmhouse that have been driving me crazy!  Like… our living room sofa.  I found our Restoration Hardware sofa on Craigslist (read my Craigslist tips here) for just $200 a few years ago.  With 4 kids and Moose (who seems to think this sofa is really his dog bed) our living room sofa was starting to look pretty sad.  With no money in our budget for a new sofa I decided to give re-stuffing it a try.

Our RH sofa originally was stuffed with down.  Every time I had to take the covers off to wash them down feathers went everywhere!  Over time, the sofa cushions became more and more saggy & I no longer wanted to sit on our couch.  With cost of down feathers a bit high, I decided to use poly-fil instead.

Supplies Needed to Re-Stuff Old Saggy Sofa Cushions…

  • 1 Old Sofa or Chair
  • 1 Box of Poly- fil
  • A Seam Ripper
  • A Sewing Needle & Thread

  • Using a seam ripper, I opened  a 6 inch opening in the cushion and stuffed it with poly-fil until there was no more room.

I used the whole box of Poly-fil.  I even added a little bit of poly-fil to the sofa’s matching pillows as well.

  1. You clever girl. Now, I do have a question. When you wash your slipcovers do you air dry them? Do you put them back on wet, or? We bought a new couch from IKEA for the flat and it has washable slipcovers.

    1. Hi Susan! I air dry these sofa slipcovers because they are velvet but I do have a few slipcovered chairs from IKEA and most of the time I air dry them as well. However, I have put the IKEA slipcovers in my dryer on extra low when I am in a rush to put the slipcovers back on and they haven’t seem to shrink at all :). I hope you are enjoying your new flat!
