My kids were home all last week and we did some cleaning up of the playroom. I took a chest that was in the kids playroom and moved it to the end of my son's bed. It gave more room in the playroom and it was a nice addition to my son's room. However, I needed to change out the cushion in order for it to work with my son's room decor.
I'm still debating whether or not I want to darken the chest, but for now I'll keep it the lighter color.
The cushion was super easy to recover. I bought the red ticking stripe fabric at JoAnn's. I opted to make a quick and easy cover, rather than creating custom cording, using a zipper, and making a box cushion (it was late on Saturday night when I started this project while my husband and son were at the Rangers playoff game).
This method was as simple as wrapping a present.
That's exactly what I did. First I sewed lengthwise, with right sides together, to form a casing and then slipped the cushion, wrapped in batting into the casing. Then I just folded the edges under and used fabric glue to adhere the ends.
That was it. It now gives my son an extra place to sit in his room, plus the storage in the chest.
Gotta love the simple projects.
Don't forget to stop back tonight for my Swing into Spring party.
The party opens at 8pm EST. Hope to see you then.
