Samantha of the Douangphila Blog flipped this couch into a bench. Click HERE to see how she did it.
In 2005, I found two pieces of furniture that I couldn’t wait to beautify. The one above (purple) was dingy white and free on Craigslist. The one just below was sitting with no cushions by our dumpster.
I carefully removed the old fabric and used it as a pattern for the new fabric. A little bit of research and a lot of staples birthed my first major DIY project.
The orange and blue bench below was a bit easier since I started from scratch. After measuring the bench, I headed downtown Los Angeles to the garment district and bought foam for the seat.
After some bed time reading…
YES! Johnny Swing, a Vermont-based artist, makes furniture out of money (and tables from car windshields).
He welds coins together to make couches and so far he’s made 20 nickel couches.
His philosophy: Being embraced by money is more peaceful than being enslaved by it.
