Futon Revolution 

Darlene came equipped with a stunning teal, velvety futon with broken springs and some attitude. We actually planned on keeping the futon, but when we went to primer paint, we realized the futon was a big pain in the ass. It was nice to have the option of a sleeping area- the futon was the most comfy spot for guests, but overall it was a waste of space. Storage was limited due to the hinge placement, and access to our heater was dusty and dark. We decided a day-bed inspired bench would be perfect. Eventually, we will create a desk area against the window wall so that we have an ‘office’. Dave and Josh did an amazing job!

I initially thought I’d paint the lids taupe, alongside the cabinetry, but I love the quirky ‘December 22’ stamping. My ma had a great idea: use old belts as handle straps!!! In the past, my mom and I repurposed old leather belts as scraps for Josh and I’s wedding center pieces and bridal bouquets. I found the PERFECT BELT FOR OUR handles, I can’t wait to show you all!

And finally, we decided to take out an extra appliance. Can you guess what we took out for extra storage?
