Give your couch the makeover you’ve always wanted by following our 5 tips!

1. Drop Cloth

Get the biggest drop cloth you can find and lay it over your couch, estimating where you need to cut it. Make sure to leave extra for when you tuck and fold the cloth into the crevices of the couch. The amount of fabric you have is the key to it not moving or slipping. When you’re finished, add a few decorative pillows for a final touch.
