Aga decided to dye it, and chose black for a more dramatic statement. With the added eclectic assortment of pillows, her living room now has a Bohemian vibe that is far from boring.

Many thanks to Aga for sharing the project! You can visit all of Aga's DIY project over on her blog, Patchwork & Co.
