When we first moved into our home we had no furniture and for some bizarre reason I went and bought a red chaise longue – how practical of me As my other half reminded me – its not like the 2 of us could sit comfortably in it and keeping in mind we didn’t have a couch – this was a completely whimsical, spontaneous purchase. The chaise longue was red and was purchased about 7 or 8 years ago and had just become dull and boring. I was in Norway last year and picked up some coffee bean bags and thought I might do something with them at some stage and this month MOH (my other half’s) family were visiting us and I had this brilliant idea to transform the chaise longue with Drury coffee bean bags (what a stroke of genius). MOH’s Mum – Torunn is a very talented lady that can turn her hand to just about anything and took on the project with her cousin Wenche. So I asked if she could pick up a dozen coffee bags from Norway and when they arrived they got measuring, cutting, sewing, stitching and this is the end result – and I absolutely love it. I’m very grateful to the ladies for transforming the chaise longue into such a unique piece of furniture.
