Window Seat Bench Cushion for IKEA Trofast Frame

A while ago we decided to move Katrina into Talia's room with her and turn Katrina's room into a playroom. I've been working on it for a while and made several improvements (I already shared our cool tree wall).

I have a couple of projects from that room that I want to share with you & a couple that I still need to do (and then share ;)

We knew we needed a good system for toy storage and we went with IKEA's Trofast storage. I'm loving it! The first piece we bought was this one:

I knew that I wanted to make a cushion for it, so that it could act like a window seat (even though it's not by a window). So, I went out & bought some foam & fabric at a fabric store and my mom & I got to work!

Here's what we came up with:

On Monday I'll share a step by step tutorial on how we made it, so if you're interested, be sure to check back! :)

  2. We love our Trofast toy storage too! But what I want to know is about those labels you put on the tubs....I need some of those! Are they laminated? Did you just tape them on? Or are they stickers? Let me know. I definitely need to do that with my kids toys!
