When we first moved into our new home we realized we would need furniture for the family room AND the living room. We didn't have money to spend on another set of leather sofas so we checked craigslist for something we could use for the time being. We came across a set that wasn't great to look at (style wise) but it was in great condition and looked comfy. A man cave set with full seats.
The sofa, love seat and chair was available for $150, so we went to see it in person. Boy were they comfortable and to our surprise the sofa included a sofa bed. I decided it was a steal and would be easy to cover up with slipcovers. Now, it's years later and we still have the set in our formal living room and the style is undetectable. The only issue I have is that I haven't had any luck finding a slipcover to hide the chair under.
To blend the colors, I also reupholstered our bar stools using the maroon cloth used in the pillows. The cloth only cost me $4.75 per 2 1/2 yards (color) which means I paid less than $10 for the brown and maroon. Basically, I redid two bar stools and 4 pillows and I still have enough cloth remaining to use for another project.
We purchased the barstools on craigslist years ago, 2 for $50. The actual cost was over $100 each. Really strong, heavy iron. I considered repainting the metal on the stools but changed my mind. I don't want to lose the vintage iron look. The seats were originally cream in color, but had stains a steamer couldn't get rid of thanks to my son dropping gravy on the seats.
