Slipcovers save lives. Ok, they don’t actually save lives. They do, however, save furniture from being kicked to the curb.
If you’ve got an ugly old sofa you’re dying to get rid of, don’t be too quick. A sofa slipcover can make your couch look brand new for a fraction of the cost of going out and shopping for a new one. Slipcovers themselves can be pricey, so making your own with the exact fabric you want can cut down majorly on expense.
