Cover the ikea sleeper sofa in a light colored patchwork cover. Accent it with single-colored pillows. Tie-dye or use fabric paints and stencils on a solid color sheet. Tie-dye or color matching pillowcases too. Wash and dry your sheets and cover properly before placing them on the sofa bed. Find large pieces of vintage or antique fabrics on economy stores, flea markets, antique stores, yard sales or online auction sites. Make pillows of vintage fabric to make your sofa bed lid. Use old cloths, curtains or crochet rolls to cover the sofa bed. Buy fabrics with print featuring autumn, spring, winter, summer or holiday themes and change your sofa bed cover depending on the season.
Use fabric residue to cover the sofa bed arms or cushions that are colored. Make a shape of sloping lid by attaching the edges of the sheet with safety pins, after the outlines of the ikea sleeper sofa. Do not do this if you are going to often use the sofa bed as a bed because safety pins make the sheet more difficult to remove. Tops buttons or beads on safety pins for a decorative effect. Make a more elaborate closure if you have the time and skills through sewing buttonholes and buttons on sheets instead of safety pins. Add buttons only if you do not mind permanently changing the sheet.
