Box O' Karlstad
Materials: KARLSTAD sofas (2), birch plywood, wood edging, walnut
Then I got the idea to make my own. Using birch plywood I bought at Home Depot, I made a box that would fit snugly around the Karlstad sofa. I finished the edges with 1/2 inch wood trim and stained it walnut. I had some red paint and used it on the bottom just for fun. I finished it with three coats of polyurethane. I bought the legs online -- not IKEA. It fits the Karlstad like a glove and the cats are foiled... for now. I made two boxes for two sofas. I just love it.
