Turning my mattress into a couch!

17436221_10155166582454297_377387664382844445_o

I wanted to share how we turned a twin size Pure Echo from My Green Mattress into a couch! If you don’t already know, safe (in terms of no flame retardants), organic couches are super, super expensive. I’m a huge fan of recycling as many materials as we already have, so Hubby & I challenged ourselves to turn our old couch into a new couch, and to buy as little as possible for the project. We’ve had the mattress for several years, but my kids are both still bed-sharing in my king & I don’t see that changing any time soon, so this mattress has been largely unused. Our old couch was a hand-me-down from my Mom & we’ve had it several years. The bottom was coming off & once my Hubby tore it off there was no stopping him, he gutted the thing. He tore off all the super cheap materials (plywood, cardboard mainly, poly fill) & got it down to it’s skeleton of a frame, then built it back up again with good wood.  He kept one arm of it & cut the other one off as the mattress was just a couple inches bigger than the frame.

We tore open the huge pillows that came with the old couch, removed all the poly stuffing (yuck), and washed the cases several times. I was having a hard time thinking of what to fill them with, they’re quite large. Then I was going through a bin of clothes & it was full of wool sweaters, many I hadn’t worn for years but I just can’t bring myself to get rid of them. Perfect I thought, I’ll stuff these cases with my wool sweaters. It makes for a very heavy, firm, pillow. But we’re mainly leaning on them when we’re sitting on the couch, not sleeping on them, and I find them quite comfortable, I really like them! Originally I velcroed them shut, it held awhile but then the velcro came a part, so I ended up sewing them shut, but can easily tear them a part should I decide I need one of those wool sweaters.

Next was figuring out the backing, it was all open & exposed wood. We considered finishing it in cedar which we had on hand, but then I came across a huge garbage bag full of my last sewing project I worked on during my final weeks of “nesting” while pregnant with my 1st born. I can’t sew well, but can sew a straight line. While nesting I started cutting up the old corduroys I wore in high school but I knew were never going to fit me again, and they had seen better days anyway, and had in mind a quilt as an end goal. Then my Son was born & that project has been in a garbage bag for 6 years! So we stapled it up as a backing!

I’m not using organic sheets, we haven’t gotten there yet, but when I need to buy new ones in the future they will be organic. I have 1 sheet, a twin wool puddle pad also from My Green Mattress that we got along with the mattress, and then another top sheet & handmade quilt to top it off.

So no, this isn’t entirely organic. But I’m pretty darn happy with how it turned out as a DIY project using entirely recycled/upcycled materials, we didn’t spend a dime on it. For those in the new couch market, I think you should consider something similar as an option! A Pure Echo is currently $719 new from My Green Mattress, Jolene, a contributing author to my page, is an affiliate & you can get 5% off even! Here’s her link: http://ss1.us/a/X8Nm5hRJ and the code is ECOSAVE5. If you are military, they offer an 8% discount (just let them know when you order). Codes cannot be combined but, they offer free shipping!

Here’s her recent review of a 9″ king size latex from them, and I purchased the same one myself in May & will be doing a review in the coming weeks: https://ecofriendlymamausa.com/2017/04/12/jolenes-my-green-mattress-review/

 

 

 

Reflecting on 3 years as a Poofy Organics Guide

3 years ago today I became a Guide with Poofy Organics. I started my mission to find the safest products on the market 5 years ago, and when I found Poofy Organics, I knew they were IT. It. What I had been looking for. All under one roof. All I can say is: the more I learn, the more I love Poofy. The products themselves. The small business. The family. What USDA certified organic stands for. To all of you who’ve been using Poofy Organics for 4 years along with me, or those who are just learning of it now: Thank you for caring about what you put on your & your family’s body. Thank you for asking what you think are too many questions. Thank you for caring about the environment. Thank YOU for letting me Guide you on this journey to making the best choice we can https://ecofriendlymamausa.com/2014/06/16/my-decision-to-become-a-guide-with-poofy-organics/
