You can find a million things wrong with a piece in your home and still not want to get rid of it.

Just ask studio audience members Kerry and Keith!

The couple inherited a loveseat from a friend that fits perfectly in an odd space in their home -- but Kerry can’t stand the material, despite Keith loving it!

"It belongs in a man cave," Kerry says. "It's vinyl-y [and] pleather-y."

So, the duo turned to designer John Gidding from TLC's "Trading Spaces" reboot to find a middle ground -- and of course, he came through!

John showed Kerry and Keith how to reupholster their loveseat with just a quality (and stylish!) piece of fabric and a staple gun.

"I went ahead and I splurged on some beautiful fabric, that -- unlike pleather -- will actually feel good on your skin," John explains.

And get this -- he still spent under $100 on the whole project!

And now, Keith doesn't have to part with the loveseat and Kerry can feel better about keeping it around.

We sure do love a happy medium!
