K and I have some home improvement going on this weekend. We had been talking about moving this year, but ended up deciding that staying put another year was more prudent. But after six years in the same place, let’s just say a refresh is needed.
BOY, would I love to replace this sofa! It’s eight years old and getting all kinds of saggy. But, like moving, replacement isn’t prudent at the moment. Okay, so, I decided to at least correct this ridiculous-looking swayback it’s developed.
The back cushions are filled with fiberfill, which of course has become compressed with the years of lounging. We did some measuring, and found that two 18″ x 18″ blocks of dense foam would fit snugly across the inside, with some room at the top. So we un-stuffed the cushions and wiggled in the foam.
Then, I used my softie-filling skills on a large scale, and firmly re-packed fiberfill around the top, sides, and front of the foam. This rounded out all the corners again. And took a fair amount of fiddling, but in the end…
…Much, much better! Still an old sofa, but at least, not one with a U-shaped back.
Bonus: fiberfill for, oh, about fifty softies. :-) Total investment: About $30.00. Works for me!
