sofa sofar



Here is a view of the sofa i have "made" as a replacement for our lovely, but impractical, long brown wonder. Its a mattress and two giant pillows. I found the pillows really cheap online and they are so great because the are huge and very firm. i actually bought three because the were such a bargain but im not sure what to do with the third; its so big! well i then sawed off some legs for the mattress that my dad found for us in a container (oh i just realised you can't see the legs -i will show you later) and sewed a cover in grey triangles. im really pleased with the result -its very comfortable and the size means we could finally rearrange things in our living room!

▶ Lina: glad you like it -and yeah i love Science of sleep so Ponyboy has two good references! -the title of the post is actually Golden the ponyboy because of Science of sleep!
Emma: who knows! We have had a lot of trouble finding boys names so maybe Ponyboy is the frontrunner :)
Rynke: i have always loved "table shots" like that. where you can just see the little things surrounding people!
▶ Lisen: yeah you are right its is very soft. and Ponyboy in The Outsider is such a nice complex soft, bad boy :)
Maria: or maybe a nickname.. you feel a great responsibility to choose the right name -a name that will be personal but not make you a freak. But i like thinking of the little thing kicking in my belly as Ponyboy :)
Provins: Navne er virkelig noget alle har en mening om! Ponyboy er nok lidt for ...udansk, men ligegyldigt hvor almindeligt et navn man vælger, er der altid nogen der synes det er mærkeligt!!
▶ Betsi: Thank you so much! keep stopping by!

Hello, Mette!

The sofa looks really good! What an excellent idea. What sort of a mattress did you use? I have recently moves into a new, bigger flat and am in a need of a bigger and more comfortable sofa (I bought one really cheap at a flea market but it's much too small for taking naps on) but there's only so much a student can afford to pay. This sounds like a really good idea!

I have finally continued blogging, ended up making a new blogger account and all for a fresh start. It's been nice reading your blog. Your entries sound so happy. :)

Hvor ville jeg ønske, jeg var i den sofa. I stedet har jeg et lille lilla flag hængende. Og blomster i håret. SF savner jer. §§§§§

Ih, hvor ser det hyggeligt ud!
Den har du sgu lavet godt, ser virkelig rar ud at spise Oreos i. :)

that looks really nice...We were so sick of searching for the perfect couch the past 6 months, we ended up buying one in IKEA.
I actually like the look of your entire livingroom:-)

Ja det er rigtigt - ALLE har en mening om navne.. Jeg har en ven som lige har kaldt sin søn det ellers ret almindelige navn Knud - Og det er der så mange der har noget imod.. Desværre... Tror bare man skal vælge det man selv føler for og så er det godt :-)

Og super fed sofa!

sandra said...

WOW i say! have been thinking of making something similar, our sofa is super-uncomfortable although it looks good. you've done such a great job!

Brilliant - now I see the grand scheme. OK - you are obsessed with triangles, but there is nothing wrong with that. Fantastically constructed sofa! I tried so long to get one that I liked -- it is the most difficult thing! Your solution is simply brilliant.... BB
