I gave my couch a modern update using PAINT – people can't believe how good it looks | The Sun

THERE'S no denying that buying new furniture can be very expensive – sofas included.

But if you're happy with the quality of your couch and just fancy a switch up, then look no further.

TikTok user Victoria Ochoa, who is from the US and posts under the acronym @visabella8a, has come up with the perfect solution.

In a video shared online, she can be seen turning her grey sofa a stunning shade of bottle green – using paint.

"I thought it would be a good idea to paint my couch green," she explains.

"It's a mix of chalk paint, water, fabric softener and a splash of white vinegar."
