Thrifty mum transforms £30 second-hand sofa into her dream posh version and people can’t believe it’s the same seat

SOMETIMES you don't always need to snap up new furniture to achieve your dream interiors, as second-hand bargains can be just as good for a fraction of the price.

One thrifty mum was left chuffed with her bargain sofa find on Facebook Marketplace, after she transformed it into her dream seat for less than £100.

Sharing her sofa transformation in Facebook group Ladies Budget DIY, mum Shazza Corr revealed that she couldn't afford to buy a new sofa so sought out one that had been previously owned.

She picked it up for a purse-friendly £30 and upholstered it – with people left impressed with the finished result and amazed it was the same sofa.

Alongside before and after pictures of her spruced up couch, Shazza explained: "Got this sofa bed off of market place for £30 , chose it because I knew I could easily cover as arms come off.

"It had been professionally cleaned but drink stains still on it from being in a holiday let. With renovating whole property I don't have money left for new sofa so ordered [upholstered] suede for £60."

Happy with her efforts and how she managed to save some cash, she added: "New sofa for £90 and I love it. Just awaiting mattress needle to run a row of stitches across middle by hand."

Hundreds of keen DIY'ers liked her post, with one person commenting: "Looks fabulous! Well done. Looks like a brand new up to date expensive sofa."

Shazza replied: "My proudest accomplishment was not swearing once. I can sew but it brings the worst out in me and only had to sew arms and darts on corners so only took 2 hours.

"I had looked at getting new but so far out of my reach at moment and I'm so glad I just went for it."

Shazza was hit with a wave of compliments over her furniture project, with another complimenting her handiwork as they posted: "Amazing great job."

A third wrote: "Love it," while one more posted: "Brilliant, love the colour!"
