Carissa modified Kelly’s dimensions to fit a twin-sized bed and got to work building, upholstering, and adding nailhead trim. I love the shape of the headboard for a little girl’s room – it reminds me of a princess’ throne!

Ayisha from The Pursuit of Handyness wanted the perfect settee for her new master bedroom. Unfortunately, the “perfect settee” in Ayisha’s book cost almost $2,000, which was certainly not justifiable for an occasional piece of furniture. Since there was a shortage of DIY settee tutorials out there, Ayisha was forced to figure it out herself. She used an old Ikea chair to save money on the construction and splurged on the foam. In the end, Ayisha got exactly what she wanted in the size and color that she wanted for only $140!

Without further ado, I’ll let Amber take it away with the how-to on how she made this beauty!
