Something new out of something old

June 5th, 2014 at 10:45 am

DD needed a comfortable chair for her room for reading. I had a hard time finding anything small enough for that space, especially at a good price. We had a small coffee table from IKEA that we didn't really need or have space for. I sat on it a few times while we were moving, just to rest for a minute, and realized it was pretty sturdy and would make a good bench if it had a cushion on top.

So I bought a piece of high density cushion foam, and a yard of fake fur for about $50 and created this:

I found a magenta fake fur throw pillow at Big Lots to lean against, and not only does it fit in her room, but there is a lot of space underneath for storage.

    That's awesome! I just showed it to my daughter - "I want it", she says.

    Thanks! I like how it turned out. DH thinks it's hideous, but DD likes it so that is all that matters. We have to keep the cats away from it because they try to "clean" it. Eww.
