I wanted a homemade sofa, but this wasn’t it.

It was a rectangular box.

I had been talking about having a homemade sofa, and to me, this meant I would adore to have the base of a sofa that would be on the order of a futon. The skeleton was to be smooth and sleek, and i wanted thick pillows with super soft stuffing so you could comfortably lie on the sofa and take a nap. I had a small apartment, and I thought this would be the perfect answer for when our acquaintance slept over. I talked to a acquaintance of mine who said she knew how to make furniture. I told him what I wanted in a sofa, and she guaranteed she could do it for me! She drew up a redprint of the sofa so I could see what it would look adore when it was done. I thought it looked more adore a daybed, which‌ is what I was looking for. I let him build our homemade sofa, but it absolutely wasn’t what I was looking for, but when she brought it to the house, I thought she was delivering a casket. It was a rectangular box. The wood was plain and simple, and she had no back to it. I asked him what it was, and she told me it was our current sofa! All I had to do was make the pillow top and I would have a comfortable place for friends to sleep. I wasn’t sure how anyone was resting on the thing, let alone try to sleep on it. I went to the furniture store and bought a daybed, which would double for a sofa when not in use as a bed.
