    Default SF woman wins ugly couch contest

    After over 10 years of living with her worn, outdated, '70s sofa, four years of determined contest entry, and 6,400 votes in her favor, San Francisco resident Julie Lee has been named the owner of America's ugliest couch, winning a $5,000 living room makeover designed by HGTV's Kim Myles.


    For the past four years, Lee has entered Sure Fit's Ugly Couch Contest, and now, her effort has paid off.
    To hear what Lee has to say about her living room makeover plans, as well as to tell me about your own ugly couch experiences, read more.
    Lee says:
    Here was my chance to finally make my living space more presentable and tasteful. It's time for the couch to go. It's functional, but it really is just so ugly. Itís "loud" and screams of the '70s. Itís orange, yellow, brown and . . . greenish? It has a floral pattern all over. And the fabric is some kind of chenille or velour or something strangely fuzzy.
    First things first: Lee will bury her eyesore of a sofa under a Sure Fit slipcover, and then she'll work with Myles to transform her living room with Sure Fit home accessories and other products. And finally, she'll celebrate: Lee's 38th birthday is next week, on Thanksgiving day!

    OMG, we had a couch similar to that growing up.

    Once when I was moving out of an apartment, the same day someone dumped their butt ugly gold 70's couch into the trash dumpster. I was so worried that everyone wouldt think that piece of crap was mine.

    I didn't open this at first because I read it as ugliest crotch.

    That winner couch reminds me of the horrible things in my childhood, even though we never had a couch like that.

    My parents had a chair with similar upholstery once upon a time.

    It's bad, but I have seen worse things regularly on Craigslist, and people are charging money for it! (Or trying to.)

    I like the 2007 ugly couch. It would look cute with a white shag rug and geometric shaped coffee table.

    That looks like my couch, except mine is more brown and black than orange. I bought it at an estate sale, in perfect condition. No one ever even sat on the damn thing.

    I'll have to post a pic. It does fit in well with my little old house.

    Maybe we should have a GR Ugly Couch Contest.
