How to fix a futon in 3 hrs… or 30 minutes…

Step #1 – Find a broken futon that is worth fixing.

It had potential, so I figured it was worth a shot.

Step #2 – Get your friendly building manager to lend you some tools.

I could tell he was surprised that I knew how to use them...

... especially this one. ;)

Step #3 – Go to the hardware store and get wood, paint and a paint brush. That guy seemed amused by me as well.

What can I say? I'm a girl who knows what she wants.

Step #4 – Go to the Fred Meyer nearby and waste a good hour wandering around picking out seeds and a seedling greenhouse.

Veggies AND Flowers... Probably gonna need to call Aunt Mary for some tips.

Step #5 – Get down to business.

Assess the situation.

Measure and cut.

Attach.

Test.

Paint.

Good as new!

    While you had the tools I hope you reinforced the other side also. Good job no more air mattress.
