Storage Sofa

About This Project


I loved the idea of the storage sofa! Such an easy build and I tweaked the plans to fit my needs... I used 5" high density foam, I lengthened the sofa to 84" (so I wouldn't have any wasted foam and also so my extremely tall son could stretch out on it without his feet hanging off the edge), I used a 2x8 for the box, and used 1/2" plywood for the seat because 1/4" ply was too flexible. I also made the seat with a zippered cover to encase the foam, batting, and plywood. This way, I can easily remove it to wash it. It's my favorite place to sit while I'm working!

Required Skill Level: 
Estimated Time Investment: 
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Finish Used: 
I used General Finishes Stain in Espresso for the base and legs.
Estimated Cost: 
Less than $100


Gorgeous job! Hope mine turns out this well. How much fabric did you end up needing? I plan on making the seat cover removable as well.

Question, how much fabric did you end up using? I plan on doing the removable cushion cover as well.

Where did you purchase the foam? Was the $100 for just lumber costs or for the entire purchase? Thanks.
