Call Me Crazy....

I think I'm going to turn my twin bed into a couch. This would definitely be my biggest repurposing project to date. But I don't think it would be very hard at all.


Here's why:
I wouldn't have to drop $500 bucks.
I'd be using something I already have. Love being green.
It's cheap.
I would have to live 2 weeks sans couch while waiting for the one I want to arrive.
It would be a perfect spot for overnight guests.
Did I mention I wouldn't have to spend $$$$?

I stumbled across this while looking for an interim solution to use until my couch arrived:

 I would only have one, but I think it could work! I think I'll use a 10oz dropcloth to make the cover. I thought about a king sized flat sheet but I think a drop cloth will look a little crisper. It doesn't have to be perfect. I like how this one is casual looking. If I end up hating it... well I can save up for a couch and get it later.

This will be happening pretty soon. So I will keep you all posted on the progress.

Ok, be honest. Have I really lost it this time?

Sincerely,
Ashleigh

That sounds like a great idea and you'll have a custom couch for very little money.

It's a great idea, and so is using drop cloth. Yes, I'll be looking forward to seeing the end result.

It looks even better than a normal sofa/sectional! Can't wait to see how it turns out if you take this project on!
