The new sofa for my Studio, made from 3 old wooden cribs!

Hello Lovelies, 
I wanted to share today how I made a new sofa for my Studio.

I made it from 3 old wooden cribs.
My Dad is working as a facility manager
 at a couple of nursery homes and Kindergarden`s.
So from time to time he bring things back home and always asking me, 
if I want to keep some of the things.
And I do, sometimes.
Like this time, these beds were stacked in the garage for quite a time 
until I figured out what I wanted to do with them.

I used three headboards and one slatted frame.
Two of the headboards I used as the back of the sofa and I cut two round halves of the headboards to use them as armrests. And to close the gap between the backside of the sofa.
And my Dad got me two mattresses as well.

After I screwed everything together it looked like this.
See the armrests?

As I was deciding which color it would get I sew a mattress cower from some fabric I bought a loong time ago. 
And I put two big pillows I had left from my old Sofa from my living room.
So everything is reclaimed accept the new paint. ;)

Look who is also already loving it;)

Like a king on his throne;)

So here it is, everything put together.

After filling the drilling holes I started painting.

After one coat of anthracite paint.

And here it is after two coats and completely dried.
(You may have noticed, that I painted the walls too and put some molding up on the ceiling. I will show you the finished studio soon;))

Quite nice, right? So let`s throw on  the mattresses and rug.

Hmm, something is missing... Oh I know, some fun pillows and some pretty art.
LIke this...

Drumroll please...;)

Love the outcome! So cozy, fun, colorful and comfy;)
The wooden box on the right is for my cats, they always used to climb right into it.
So I put a blanket in it. 

This corner really evolved;)
Love it! 
So what do you think?
A friend told me I should build furniture more often and make a living out of it;)
Should I?
My point is, just build something with your own hands! 
You don`t always have to buy new stuff, 
just visit your local thrift store or some flea markets and use what you find to create something new.;)

Some more succulent gardens...:)

Hello Lovelies, 
I did it again, I made two more succulent gardens for my studio.

Wanna see?

Here is the process.

I am kind of obsessed with these greens right now.

Just throw in some dirt into the container of your choice and put in the succulents.
I made two pots out of the greens I shopped.
A big one for the window and a small one for the shelf.

And here they are in action;)

So, here they are, my pretty succulent gardens;)
Click the pick below, if you like to see the previous succulent garden, 
with the inspirational video by Emily Henderson.
