This chair joined our family pre-babies and has taken a lot of abuse since then. Like the best of us, he's showing signs of aging and needs a little perking up (until I can buy a new one).
Maybe you have a tired chair, too (sometimes known as "the man chair" that won't leave because it's just so comfortable). So, what do you do?
Here's my quick fix:
This isn't rocket science, but definitely an easy way to give an old chair new life. And, sometimes it's the little changes that make you feel better about your home. I simply used a $3.99 IKEA throw (folded in half) and a bold zig zag pillow (that I won from this blog).
Changing pillows is one of the easiest updates you can make. How do you know it's time? In general, if your pillows have dated cording, tassels, match the upholstery and/or are as flat as a pancake, it's probably time to toss them.
If your chair or sofa is solid or in a fabric with a small pattern, go for pillows with big, bold prints. Throws are also a quick disguise. I chose a soft fleece one to cover most of the chair, but I also love the texture that faux fur throws add to a room.
What's your best "quick fix" tip?
