Memory foam bed becomes a loveseat

Filed Under: home decor, household hacks, sewing

loveseat bedWhen I get a flyer in the mail that is advertising sale prices on their furniture, I quickly browse through it, and then pitch the flyer into the burn bag. Even though the furniture is on sale, it is still way too expensive for my budget.

If you are in need of a new sofa or loveseat, check out diydiva's memory foam queen sized bed turned loveseat. By buying a bed on eBay and using an electric saw, she transformed the bed into a cool loveseat, complete with custom slipcover.

What more do you want for under $200? I think her loveseat is adorable, and is nice to have especially if you have pets that are on an evil mission to destroy any furniture you may own.

    When cutting memory foam try using an electric carving knife...works great and leaves a very smooth cut.

    IKEA Klippan sofas don't cost much more than the initial mattress, but then there's the issue of... getting to IKEA. Which can be ridiculously costly in fuel usage, if it's even feasible.

    (I was going to say "Also, they aren't very DIY" -- then I remembered it's IKEA: so it's just you, pieces of a sofa, and an Allen wrench.... ;)
