DIY Chic Mini Sofa

For those of you who did not know, I am a pretty crafty person... I think it has something to do with the fact that I am left handed. I love crafting- but mainly home deco projects. Iam thirfter at heart, who favors places like Kensington market... I love finding junk furniture and glaming it up!

I thought it would be fun to start sharing some of my recent projects on the blog, hoping to inspire all of you Mama's and Mama's to be (Inshallah).

Most of us have walked into Pottery Barn and fallen for an absolutely adorable mini kiddie sofa only to see the price tag and be disgusted... I mean why does kiddie furnuture have to cost more than adult furniture?!

I personally do not see a point in paying so much... and I also appreciate the beauty of making something your OWN, putting your own touch on it and most of all- itll be so much fun to tell your kids when they are older, "your Mama made that for you"

What you will need:

Couple safety pins
Glue gun
Staple gun
Couple yards fabric (I used approx 3 yards)
Mini sofa

Here is what the project cost me:

Mini Thirfted Sofa (I especially liked this retro model because it had a wooden frame base): $20

Fabric (fabric I had purchased ages ago, but my husband hated the print too much for me to use in the living room) I think it was $25-- if I didnt have the fabric laying around, I would have opted for a much cheaper fabric I could have purchased on sale, BTW fabric land is having a great sale on kiddie prints

Total cost: $45... beat that Pottery Barn!

BEFORE (check out the ugly animal print)

Half way there!

After: Completed!
