When you buy things that are expensive, like a sofa or something that really feels like an investment, you need to keep it as plain as possible, as simple as possible. Make sure that it’s a clean design that will work with whatever style you want it to.
Many of our blog followers will not be surprised to know that we have a leather sofa and two matching lounge chairs , that are over two decades old.
This sofa combo was purchased new, yes back when RUDE Girl spent money on good quality new things. The good quality investment has paid off and served us well. However, there has always been one niggling problem. And this was not picked up at point of sale.
The sofa and the two chairs’ cushions slip slide away from under our buttocks. It’s very annoying because your back is no longer supported.
It has taken until now to finally troubleshoot the problem. Buying a new sofa and chairs was out of the question. Why? We do not shop for stuff. Buying secondhand was an option but nothing had tickled our fancy. And waiting for a free replacement, whilst always an option, was not happening.
I had to be jolted to remember that we are the RUDE guys, and good at re-purposing and fixing. So, I said to myself it’s time to solve this issue, with what’s in the home, and for free. The resource that anchored down the cushions, to stop them slipping, was actually stored in RUDE Boy’s shed. I just had to go searching for it. Here’s my fix it story in the video below.
