    @Andrea: This is really great! Can you explain how far you cut the foam matras? Am I correct in understanding that you literally cut it totally in half and just put the 2 halves together in the 1 removable cover?
    Is it comfortable to sit on?

    That is so clever! Thanks for sharing!!!

    Could you post what thickness of foam mattress you used?

    It really was that simple! I just cut one of the foam mattresses in half with a sharp knife and put the 2 pieces together so it was half the width but twice as deep.
    I then got some fabric and made it into removable covers so that it can easily be returned to its use as a bed.
    When the mattress it put together inside its zippy cover you wouldn’t even know it has been cut!

    A little information on this would be helpful.
