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 Sofa Before…
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
How to Re-Stuff an Old Sofa Cushions
- 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 then stitched the opening closed and added the sofa cover back on after washing it.
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.
Don’t worry if it looks like you overstuffed your sofa cushions at first.
Once you start sitting on your sofa the cushions will fill in and look normal once again!
I hope this inspires anyone who has a tired, saggy looking couch to give re-stuffing your sofa cushions a try.
