After a long day of work Julyfeldmanforbes, my last naptime was at home, and I’m in the mood for some TV. So after a quick bedtime, I headed to the local video store to look for something to watch. Unfortunately, it was already dark out so there wasn’t much to see. But as is the case with most things, there was an answer for that! 😀 That’s right! The couch! It’s not just anything you can do now days — that couch is homemade! And since it’s not something you can find at a local place (like maybe they don’t have any), but rather something you can make yourself … how cool is that? Make your very own couch right from the comfort of your own home? YESSSSSS!!!!!
What you need to make your very own couch
The first step to making your own couch is to decide what type of furniture you want. This is very important because you won’t be able to puttogether materials yourself and you won’t know how much space is left until you have it made. If you know you’re going to be in a house where there are guests — especially young people — you may want a wooden crate or other type of furniture to go with the couch. If you know you’re only going to use the couch for one night, a chair would be nice too. Remember to decide what you’re going to use first because once you’ve chosen what you’re going to make, you can’t go wrong with anything!
Step 1: Make a70% of it
The next step is to cut your desired size out of the wooden crate. You’re going to use this piece of furniture to make a form of supports for your couch. You can choose between using a metal or wooden bar, but I like the wooden one. It will be more sturdy, and it will give the couch a more solid feel. Please use a safe and healthy wood! Other than that, any kind of real furniture you can find will do the trick!
Step 2: Only use plywood
After you’ve cut your couch into small parts, you’re going to want to sand and shaped it into a piece that’s stronger than the original. Here’s where it gets interesting! You’re going to use a special tool that’s meant for doing this — a plywood planer. It’s a perfectly safe and easy-to-use tool that can be found at any home improvement or home staging store. It’s perfect for making small wooden chunks that you can then shape into pieces that will be used to make your couch.
Step 3: Use foam on top and bottom
After you’ve shaped your wooden pieces into pretty tablets, you’re going to want to fill them with foam. Your foam board is what’s known as a ring-cut foam, which is exactly what it sounds like — a circle made of layers of foam. It’s a great choice for making a decorative piece that goes with your artistic piece. You can purchase foam rings at any home improvement or home staging store. It’s a very easy-to-use, non- Sacred England-like thing to use!
Step 4: Paint it black or white
The final step is to paint it black or white. This can be a very expensive step, so if you’re going to do this a few times, be careful. It’s going to set your piece up for a long time. If you want to add some color to your piece, though, you can never go wrong with black or white mixed with medium- or heavy-duty alcohol. It’s great for making intricate designs, or for making simple designs that are decorative.
Step 5: Add pillows and pillows above the couch
The last step is to add pillow cases to the piece. You can find these little things in stores for about $10 or less. You can use whatever color or style you like on this piece, but I prefer the look of white with a few shades of black added to brighten things up.
Step 6: Decide how many people you’d like to sleep in this bed
Now that you’ve got the basic elements of your bed made, it’s time to decide on the number of people you’d like to sleep in this bed. There are so many great options when it comes to single-person beds and pull-out cribs that you should be able to decide on a number that works best for you.
If you’re looking to get a good night’s sleep, you should definitely consider putting together your own couch. It’s not only cheaper than buying a couch, but it’s also much more decorative and a perfect extension of your home. So, if you want to make your own couch, all you need to do is decide what type of furniture you want and purchase it. Next, you can choose from a number of websites that sell made-to-order furniture, which is exactly what you need to make your couch. Once you have the basics down, you can 1) make your couch, 2) store it in the garage or shed, and 3) haul it home when you’re done with the day.
