In 2016 we teamed up with Jaime Costiglio from That’s My Letter on this easy to build DIY sofa and ottoman.
Most people have a family room or another designated space where they watch TV or play games. In my home, we have an open first floor with a section for more formal gatherings and a separate space for family time. In the formal space, we have a seating arrangement with lots of decorative pillows (because more pillows equals fancy, right?). The kids are not allowed to sit in this area. Conversely, in our casual family area, we have a battle-worn microfiber sectional that the kids are allowed to lounge and relax on. Let’s just say that the sectional has seen better days.
