Ugly Sofa, any ideas?

@Sunny Alexander any slip cover is going to go over the entire couch, so it will make it harder to use the sleeper sofa. I understand having a budget, but old and outdated furniture will affect your reviews and income potential. Just something to consider. Spending $800 may seem like a lot, but at $150 a night, you come out ahead after 6 nights. So just a few days extra occupancy in the year will make all your money back.

One idea is use a slip cover, but provide instructions on how to remove and put back on. Not ideal, but it could get you by until you have more money. 

Happy to report the UGLY sofa is GONE!  I cannot begin to tell you the sweat, pain, and frustration of getting said sofa into the condo.  We had it delivered 4 hours before the guest was scheduled to arrive....we needed all 4 hours to get this sucker inside the condo.  On the plus side, it looks AMAZING!
