Bought a brand new couch this summer and put this old one on the front porch. After about two months, hubby said the new one made his back hurt and he wanted the old one back. Well, we switched them around, but two months on the front porch didn't do it any good, and it was way over 10 years old to start with. Decided to paint and recover it. Going to piece and quilt the covers with Coke fabric and paint the rest with chalk paint.
