Storage Sofa

I loved the idea of the storage sofa! Such an easy build and I tweaked the plans to fit my needs... I used 5" high density foam, I lengthened the sofa to 84" (so I wouldn't have any wasted foam and also so my extremely tall son could stretch out on it without his feet hanging off the edge), I used a 2x8 for the box, and used 1/2" plywood for the seat because 1/4" ply was too flexible. I also made the seat with a zippered cover to encase the foam, batting, and plywood. This way, I can easily remove it to wash it. It's my favorite place to sit while I'm working!

Gorgeous job! Hope mine turns out this well. How much fabric did you end up needing? I plan on making the seat cover removable as well.

Question, how much fabric did you end up using? I plan on doing the removable cushion cover as well.

It is really a fantastic idea to use storage sofa, as it can be used for dual purposes of storage plus sofa. Moreover, it will not occupy much space in the room. Anyway, please click here to see my site.

Where did you purchase the foam? Was the $100 for just lumber costs or for the entire purchase? Thanks.

I and my mom have not bonded in a while, and we have always bonded over shopping for furniture and we have not shopped in many years because I have always been busy with my academic work. She was traveling to Canada for a 3-month duration to her mothers' and she wanted to gift her a storage sofa. I gave all my pending work to the assignment writing service in Al Khobar so that I could have the time to shop with her
