Have a bookcase full of books and nowhere comfortable to read them? Transform this household basic into a comfortable bench where you can store – and read – all your favorites. First, tip the bookcase over so it sits on the floor horizontally. Take a 2-centimeter thick board the same size as the bookcase and top it with a 6-centimeter thickness of foam. Next, cover the board and foam with a piece of fabric, making sure that it is generous enough to wrap around the top and sides, and onto the back. Flip the entire sandwich over and use a staple gun to attach the fabric to the back of the board, folding neat corners at the ends. Turn it right side up and you’re ready to read…or lounge…or nap!
