Hello everyone! It’s Jacky!
In the last post I had let you all know about Samantha’s dream of a doll house. And we now have 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, a stable, a deck, and a kitchen. (I know you all haven’t seen the deck, bathroom, and kitchen yet, but I will post about it soon.) The only thing we don’t have is a living room. Heather looked online at couches and found them to be very expensive so we decided to make our own using stuff that was lying around the house and would probably be thrown away! Addy helped me put it together.
First we got 3 pop can boxes and stuffed plastic bags inside, so when we sat on the box it wouldn’t get squashed but also wouldn’t be terribly hard.
After taping them closed we duck-taped 2 of them together.
Then put the third box on top.
We used toilet paper rolls as the arms of the couch and stuffed them with plastic bags to give them more stability.
Then we taped them to the ends of the couch.
“Wow!” Addy said, “It’s really starting to look like a couch now.”
Jessica-Lily and Katherine are going to post part 2 of the crafty couch so stay tuned!
Signing off for now,
