CHECK OUT MY NEW OUTDOOR SOFA ON BUDGET!
I love a good bargain, so I usually check out if there is any second-hand to buy at a good price before I purchase what I´m looking for.
My latest bargain is this outdoor sofa that I found on Finn.no last week. I got a 4-seat sofa with footstool inkl. cushions and a table for 1400 NOK – which is over 70% off full price! But as you can see on the before photos, the furniture needed a little makeover. So I put all the cushions covers in the washing machine ( on 60 degrees and with some stain remover ) and painted all the furniture using leftover paint from the house ( Jotun Optimal 9938 Dempet Sort ) after a good wash. Frida over at Trendenser painted these same Ikea modules a few years back, so I knew they would look good in black.
The cushions became all white again ( they actually look awful and had lots of yellow stains, so I thought for a while that I had to buy new ones.. ), and the furniture looked amazing after a couple of coats with black paint.
I chose to use the footstool as a table as well, as I wanted a bigger table.
I´m very happy with the result and of course the good bargain. Something to remember when looking for something new.
