Notice the sassy hot pink packing tape holding the bed inside...not to mention this sucker was heavy! (hence the reason for the garage pics...) I ripped the skirt off because she wanted to do a drop skirt with no pleats. She went with an awesome black and greyish houndstooth print trimmed out with a black ticking stripe. I love the combo!!! Her couch made me grin from ear to ear when it was done!!! I think its a night and day difference! I was able to make the slipcover function with the "hide a bed" so if they decided to use it for a third time, they don't have to take it apart.... I still cant believe how great it looks!! I am trying to wipe the smile off my face right now!
