Quick and dirty couch makeover for under $50

I’m in a bit of an awkward position because I can’t afford to buy a brand new (nice) couch right at the moment, but I do intend to replace this old couch within a year. Thus, I need to have a useable, comfortable couch until I can replace it, but don’t want to put any more money into it than I have to. So with the Interwebz as my guide, I did a few more hours of research about couches and successfully “made over” my sad old couch for under $50.

How can I gussy up my kitchen table?

I am grateful for it, especially considering it is the only one we have. But sometimes I wish it was more … special. Besides a tablecloth, what are some ways I could gussy up this table and make it more uniquely ours?
