    Default Tearing apart an old couch and using the frame

    Anyone ever do this? I have seen it somewhere, where you just strip it down to the wooden frame, add some plywood to make a seat and back, and paint and add pillows. Seems one I saw used lattice for the back. They used the old couch seat cushions, recovered of course, for the seat. Can't remember the details, but I was just wondering, because I have an old "freecycle" couch that really isn't good for anything, so I thought I might try it one day.

    I found it! This is so cute, even though it doesn't have cushions, like i thought it did.

    I had to look at the picture to understand . I was picturing something much different as was like " ew " but now that i see what you mean I think it sounds like a great idea.

    I watch that show everyday on HGTV and thought that was such a neat idea when they had it on the show a couple of days ago.

    I could not do it by myself, but it seems very doable. I would love to have one on one of the decks in my backyard under my magnolia tree.
