A MUM has revealed how she gave her ‘damaged’ black leather sofa a new lease of life for just £25.
She shared a snap of her living room, revealing a massive five-seater corner sofa which had seen better days.
It had faded to a dark brown, and the seats most often used had seen their colour vanish almost completely.
Rather than fork out for a brand new sofa, one mum decided to give it a lick of paint to transform it.
She bought a leather restorer kit on eBay for just £24.99 – and the results are incredible.
She shared before-and-after photos to Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, where more than 600 people have admired her handiwork.
