Bought a Couch!

I bought a couch off of kijiji for $70. Here are the pictures from the poster's ad. Please ignore the poor styling. I'm planning a much prettier look for this piece:
I love that it's white for all of the colorful accent pillows I'm planning to add. It's also on the smaller side (which will be perfect for my new rental space in the fall). The seller was asking $100 originally but because she really wanted it gone to make room for new furniture, she let it go for 70. 
The only problem is the cushion covers are DIRTY y'all...but I think a good bleaching and scrub will have them looking good as new! Do you have any tips for washing cushion covers from IKEA?
I'm also thinking about painting the wooden frame black..any thoughts?

Great steal!! I think painting the wood black is a great idea... if you have black throughout the rest of your furniture/overall concept. If you did paint it black, your throw pillows for the couch could maybe have just a HINT of black in them too - that'd really pull it all together nicely! As for bleaching... do part water and part bleach and let those babies soak!

I was actually going to suggest painting the wood too. Black is nice but I think pink would be fun!

I think painting it black would definitely make it look more modern! Ikea has some great wood stains that you could try out! Happy Monday to You, Tiffany!
