Slipcover Makeover Turns Sleigh Bed into a Sofa

To turn this vintage sleigh-bed into a sofa I gave it a slipcover makeover times nine! Each piece — the futon cushion, topper, bolster, soft-box pillows and knife-edge pillows — called out for a washable slipcover.

Unlike a traditional sofa slipcover that uses just one fabric, this project required a mix of textures and patterns. I went with hemp canvas, organic cotton twill, vintage ticking and three reclaimed cotton prints — an eco-friendly combo that looks great with the aged patina of the wood frame.
