Today we have a guest blogger who writes for us, her name is Agnes and she runs the lovely, inspiring blog hejregina. At Bemz we love do-it-yourself projects and are all about personalisation, which is why we asked Agnes to tell us about how she gave a second-hand Karlanda sofa a completally new look, thanks to a cover from Bemz and some clever diy-ing.
My name is Agnes and I'm running the blog hejregina (Regina is my middle name).
When my boyfriend and I moved to a bigger apartment, we also needed a bigger sofa. We wanted a sofa that not everyone else had, but that we could afford.
We changed the original legs from IKEA to new ones from PrettyPegs. The new legs fit better to the new colour and to the apartment overall.
To make the sofa even more personal, we put buttons in the cushions. You can cut out a piece of fabric behind the cushions where you can't see or select buttons in a totally different fabric. I used a big needle that last through the entire cushion to get the buttons in place.
Thank you Agnes for your very inspiring post. Visit Agnes blog here and follow her on Instagram @agnesregina.
