So I had so much hassel with Ikea sofas and found a blog for people who upgrade Ikea furniture called Ikea Hackers. Anyway, I wanted to make a sofa after putting together the self assembly sofas. I knew that I would  make it better. So I ordered:

  1. One single Fjellse bed frame £25
  2. One Slatted base bas 90cm wide £15
  3. One Sultan Haruestua mattress 90x200cm £60
  4. Chipboard – offcut 35x88cm £2
  5. SKYDDA LÄTT Mattress protector £3
  6. Old quilt and quilting (I already had it)
  7. Cotton canvas furniture fabric (I already had it)
  8. I found the cushions in the Ikea Bargain Corner for £12 each. I modified the size.
