  1. I love all of these ideas! My favorite was probably the one with the button. I’m going to have to try that with my older couch.

  2. Wow this is getting me so excited! We are currently trying to flip a property, and we need to decorate it to get it sold quickly. We just spent some money on a hardwood floor refinishing, and though we love the results, we need to readjust our staging budget haha It looks like it would actually be cheaper to buy some used furniture and attempt to reupholster or paint it following some of your ideas than to rent new furniture for a week or two. Thank you so much for sharing! We’re honestly so hyped to get started.

  3. Hi,
