To' up, salvaged, foam couch cushions "cleverly" concealed by an old white matelassé blanket. Not that I don't love the blanket - I adore it, actually. I've had it since high school, but it's long since become too stiff to sleep under at night.
First step: corral all those foam cushions into one long mattress for the sofa with a fitted cover made from an old sheet.:

Blanket turned cover!

Yes, it's all floppy. I wanted it that way. All I did was fold the blanket in half lengthwise, pin around one edge and one end, sew it, and then slip it on like a pillowcase and fold the open end inside. (1) I wanted the scalloped edge of the blanket to show, because that's one of my favorite things about it, and (2) when I get done dressing this thing up with pillows, put the back on, and rearrange the furniture the way I'm thinking of doing, it'll end up looking like a piled-up little daybed in the corner here. :)
Next: a lamp!
