...You can sort of see in the second picture that the sides of the couch look routered, and the arms are spindly (not sure if that's the word), and it is too country-ish for our taste. I was hoping that in your infinite wisdom you could help me find a greener solution than just throwing it out and buying a new one!

Editor: Jil, we have a few ideas for you! Obviously you could pay to have it reuphostered (takes money) or you could to reupholster it yourself (which also takes money and skill). So, an easier solution would be to a) paint the frame—perhaps white or black, and b) cover the back and seat cushions with a large blanket or heavy canvas cloth in a bright color or fun fabric.
Other suggestions for Jil?
