Hello, friends! I hope your week has been going well and that you're enjoying some of the holiday spirit that's floating around. Things have been pretty crazy around here lately, but I've got some time off for Christmas and I'm really looking forward to a bit of a break.
In the meantime, I wanted to share a bit of apartment progress! I've lusted after these sofas for a while, but I knew I needed to come up with a more budget-friendly option. Cue the Ikea hacks!
I bought this sofa a few years ago, and originally got it with the floral cover. I loved it for a while, but knew I wanted a change.
I went back and forth over which cover to replace my floral one with. Eventually I settled on the Isunda grey. I thought it had a nice, mid century feel, and I LOVE the texture. The great thing about the Karlstad covers, is that they're really not covers at all. You take the whole sofa apart and replace each piece's fabric. As you can see from the pictures, it looks completely reupholstered.
The legs came from this Etsy shop, and they are fabulous. They come untreated and I stained them myself.
Overall, I'm so happy with how this hack turned out. It's a great way to get some mid century style on a budget.
What's your favourite Ikea hack? Have you had success with one before?
I'd love to hear!
