Adding a set of new legs is probably the easiest update you can make on your IKEA sofa. There are plenty of stores that sell furniture legs that fit IKEA sofas. Featured below is the ESTELLE from Pretty Pegs.
iii) Even, a new slipcover
Totally change the color of your sofa. It makes a big difference to the room.
If you have a plain rug, give it a pattern to add another layer of visual interest. Here are two ways you can do this:
i) Use a Sharpie for a Beni Ouarain-ish look
Crystal took a Sharpie to her ADUM rug and drew lines across. Best thing is, they don’t have to be perfectly straight. How easy is that. See the tutorial. (ADUM is discontinued, consider the STOENSE instead).
ii) Paint a flatwoven rug
Yes it’s possible to paint your rug. Flatwoven rugs like the LOHALS ($89.99 for a 5’x7′) are pretty affordable. With some patience and a steady hand, you can transform it into an eye-catching rug.
