Of course, it came in some enormous cardboard boxes, which provided us with plenty of construction material for a project that we've been wanting to do since we saw it here.
Here's the base, with some additional bracing underneath. The Kid has gained more than a few pounds since her refugee days, so she needs something sturdy.
The dogs had to get in on the action as well. This is the top, also cut from one big piece of cardboard.
She loves it! She's hardly left the chaise since we set it up in the living room. It's a little bigger than it needs to be - I guess we overestimated The Kid's size when we laid out the design. And that's saying something.
The Kid's favorite old bath mat just happens to fit in there.
