Hello to all our home decor enthusiasts and sustainability advocates! In this post, we're going to explain how you can repurpose your IKEA Poang footstool cover into a chic and cozy pillow cover. Our Poang covers come in a set so you can have matching chair and footstool covers. BUT if you don't have a footstool, this repurposed hack is for you!

The Art of Repurposing IKEA Furniture Covers

IKEA's Poang series is known for its functionality and style. But what happens when you have a footstool cover with no footstool in sight? There is no need to let it go to waste. Instead, it can become your chair's best accessory!

Step 1: Remove the Velcro

Start by carefully cutting off the velcro strip from the back of your Poang footstool cover. This is the first step in giving it a new purpose.

Step 2: Smooth and Prepare

Next, iron the cover on the reverse side to smooth out any creases or impressions left by the velcro. This step ensures a clean and polished look for your new pillow. Iron in one direction for velvet covers on a low heat setting.

Step 3: Insert and Fluff

Finally, insert a snug pillow into the cover. Watch as the footstool cover effortlessly transforms into an inviting and plush pillow, ready to adorn your space!
