There’s no doubt about it – there are some definite sofa horror stories out there in our world.

We’ve trawled the web to find our top 5, and these are some doozies – don’t say we didn’t warn you!

We don’t mind Donkey, but we definitely would NOT want to be sitting on this sofa!

How long have those stains been there for??


This one is still in good condition, but there is just way too much going on!!

We had these two couches to try and shift pics 1 and 2… Only the brown one had a fire label so was going to be collected tomorrow by the British heart foundation. The beige we’d need to cut up so it was easier to move. While I was on a tip run my OH cut the couch in half. The wrong couch. 😂🤣 MEN!! He’s worked so hard this weekend but honestly I cannot believe he did this. So now neither can be collected and we have to take them both to the tip. Along with a few appliances we ripped out of the kitchen today. I say we but I didn’t rip anything out 🙈 Well done baby 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 . . . #house #home #oldtonew #revamp #renovation #oldcouch #sofa #wrong #cut #dope #interior #decor
