Back when Kenutu was a newborn baby, there were tube televisions. Kenutu was so fancy that she had a built-in television stand in her salon. This technological support system, thanks to flat screen televisions, is now just a place to hit your head or knock your shoulder when you're lounging in the dining area. It's time to massage the rough spots a little bit.
First up was removing the little support frame, which were a couple of pieces of wood screwed in below the shelf. Next up was reconfiguring the cushion, which had a chunk out of it to accommodate the shelf. I had some leftover fabric from the original cushion update, and it, coupled with the parts I was able to salvage from the existing cushion, was juuuuusssst enough to make it work.
I didn't bother recutting a wood back frame or buying new foam. Instead, I pulled out the duct tape, every master's tool, and secured a piece of foam to the back piece of wood. Then I made the panel of fabric long enough to staple over it. That oughtta do the trick, right? JUST DON'T LOOK BACK THERE DAMMIT.
I gotta say, this little touch up made this space much more useful. I can see in that storage nook in the corner now, and you can recline against the corner without always worrying you're going to smack your head when you get up. I'm thinking I may even massage the wood into a little collapsible counter space... oh god another project just showed up.
Two people dumb enough to think anything is possible and smart enough to bumble their way into discoveries.
