Think your living room decor needs to be less than spectacular due to budget limitations? Think again! When I was in college or starting out in my first few apartments, I wish I had known how easy it was to make a sofa from pretty inexpensive materials. Instead, I settled for some sub-standard used couches I found on Craiglist. Never again, though! Making your own couch or even updating an old one is a far better way to go when you need some awesome living room seating on a budget or some stylish outdoor furniture ideas. Check out these step by step tutorials and learn how easy it is to make a cool sofa or couch for your home.
