Lauren is on a tight budget so when she found this sofa at a thrift store for $60, she knew its makeover would also have to be a thrifty affair. I like how it looks more rustic that way. Instead I decided to go with drop cloth. From Lauren:
I ripped out the old fabric, stripped the speckled varnish on the wood frame, sanded it down but kept the bare wood instead of varnishing again. From the look of the final project, you’d never know just how much she saved. Twill tape went over the staples with hot glue instead of taking the time to make yards of cording. Thank you Lauren! All in all I spent around $200 on everything.
