This is so beautifully done. The easiest way to make a pouf (which I’m guessing is a fluffy comforter) might be to buy two comforters and cut and sew them together in the best shape, using flat or fitted sheets to cover the sofa when it is used as a bed.

That is so pretty. Job well done.
Did you take the armrest off in the picture?
What did you use on top of Springs to enclose them? Love this idea. Wondering If I can do the same as my back cushions are attached in have a couch with 2 sets cushions and a chase cushion. How much fabric di you purchase and did you use old cushions as pattern?
What is it you have on the walls ? Did you paint this scene or is it a wall paper or stencil?
love it !
