Click on Images to EnlargeHere you go... Your own Mid Century Daybed/ Couch. Just a mattress and some elbow grease and you could DIY a whole couch. ( And I was proud of my little throw pillows!)
Let me know if I should start a flickr group for everyone who is going to make this one. I am telling you it makes me want a rumpus room, or a ranch house.
This Tutorial courtesy of The Mechanix Illustrated How- To-Do-It Encyclopedia Volume 6, 1961 edition.This encyclopedia is awesome. Of course there is no info on the slipcovers for the bolsters and mattress.. In the DIY world of yore, this info must be common sense... or maybe it is covered in Volume 13 , under "s" for slipcover. I only got two volumes this so I am out of luck, apparently
But at .50 each on "Thrifted Tuesday"... both are chock full of handy dandy goodness... I am sure there is a slip cover 'how to' I can punt with.
And I am so totally tickled to get the "Make My Day" award from Drewzel..
How cool do I feel? Pretty stinkin' cool. I will be pondering who to pass it along to...
So many blog crushes these days!!
Okay? Ready.. Set... go make a couch!
