No, seriously. Listen to the experts and only slipcover furniture with good cushions.
There is a word that comes to mind when I think of the project below, but it isn't fit to print so I'll refrain.
The first part wasn't too bad. I just traced an outline of the old cushions on my pieces of foam.
A few moments after this photo was taken, there was a double massacre of foam in my living room.
My mom recommended using a large serrated knife. It worked.......eventually. And with a lot of elbow grease involved. Foam is not as easy to cut as one would think. It was a painstakingly slow process.
If you would like your living room to look like a foam bomb went off, I suggest you try this project. :)
There was a lot of this going on. Me hiking my leg up on one side to hold the foam so I could cut with one hand and use the other hand to hold the piece I was cutting. A helper would have been nice, but I don't trust my 18 month old with large knives just yet.
