Before and After
If you have this same sofa model (mine came from this set) here's a way to de-Barbie it.
Those emblems in the rings are thin enough to be cut out with whatever cutting tool you have, even a toe nail clipper.
The seating is a little low for my taste so I added this 1/2 inch piece of foam and scissor cut it to shape.
The sofa can be taken completely apart if you want to get into all the crevices or remove the "cushions" in case you want to paint or put fabric on them.
I sealed the magic marker with satin varnish, covered my foam with fabric and I now have a cool piece that has successfully been de-Barbiefied.
Since I had some of that foam left I also went ahead and made a cushion for my (Just Dreamz) lounger.
I have no idea how to make upholstery corners, but eh, it looks okay.
This is going to be my last "remodelling" post for awhile because these are the last premade pieces I needed for my dio. Besides, I'm so over smelling magic marker, lol. Now I can get to work on crafting some things from scratch. Cardboard here I come!
