As I mentioned in my last post, our couch is about 10 years old.
And the back pillows look very sad.
Let’s take a closer look….
It’s like they are frowning at me.
No, the back cushions are not fluffed. But if I spent a few minutes fluffing them, then sat down to watch tv, they would still look like this.
Did you know that Pottery Barn will sell you new cushion inserts? And did you know that they are super cheap!? I’m not kidding…cheap!!! Poly cushions (which is what we have) are less than $30 each. Since we will move this couch up to the playroom after our new couch arrives, a $120 facelift would be a worthwhile investment.
Well, look what arrived in the mail this week!
When I opened the boxes up, I was certain they shipped me the wrong size.
Surely I didn’t have to point out which pillow is the old insert!! Can you believe the difference in size?
I got to work stuffing the new inserts into my Pottery Barn cover. And surprisingly, they sent the correct size. Our old ones were just really squished and sad looking.
And thanks to my handy-dandy 10 year old photographer, I was caught working hard!
After getting one cushion on the couch, I was convinced the size was perfect!
A few minutes later, I had finished putting the new inserts in place. And I was amazed. It was like a new couch!
So now, when the kids do their ‘chair-to-footstool-to-couch obstacle course face dive’ into the couch, the cushions don’t squish down to nothing!
And as always, we had to ask ourselves “Why didn’t we do this sooner?!” I guess better late than never.
One last look at the before….
And the after….
Does your Pottery Barn couch need a facelift?! If so, give Pottery Barn a call!
