We have ordered a new beautiful sectional (which arrives in 6 days but who's counting?!) So in preparation for it's arrival (and out of necessity to have our carpet relaid) we took out our current couch and loveseat. When we moved them out Neil literally took a sawzall and cut them in half. Not wanting to waste good materials he then turned the furniture into organ donors - removing the firm foam seats and the batting from the backs.
We had 4 foam cushions like this
and 2 HUGE bags of batting like this
With the help of my friend Laura who is a recovering expert we turned them into these
and even added handy carrying handles
perfect for little bodies to climb on, sit on, jump on and lay on.
With only ONE of the bags of batting I was able to make these 2 huge pillows. Neil wants me to make one HUGE pillow with the entire other bag of batting but I reminded him that these things are fun but we do have to store them somewhere too! We'll see.
So thanks for your guts loveseat and couch, we're happy to keep parts of you around.
