recovering my screened in porch sofa

I love this vintage (circa 1920's) sofa we use on our back porch.
It is big enough to sleep on like a bed, and it is in great condition. We got it earlier this year at Goodwill.
The upholstery is definitely not original. If I had to guess I'd say it was probably redone in the 1980's. The cushions and upholstery are in good condition, but not at all my style. I'm not good enough at my sewing yet to be able to sew new cushions for it. I looked around online for a cheap alternative and found a really good deal on a "sofa throw" with matching pillows. It fits the sofa perfectly and it makes it feel brand new.
I do want to sew some more throw pillows for it when I find fabric that I like.
