Covered ENGAN

Materials: Fabric and tape

Description: I needed a new, simple bed. I liked ENGAN’s shape but I hate the dark wood, I like bright colours. So I covered with some fabric! (I honestly just clued it to the wood using double sided tape)

Then, my previously owned mattress was too small because IKEA does weird sized beds! So I bought some foam, and as I already stablished, can’t sew, I made that a cover with some fabric and hem tape!

In the picture also the now-discontinued Manger headboard from IKEA (which I bought when it came and it’s being used as a headboard for the first time since!)
