Very clever! I'd have never thought of something like that!

You're totally brilliant!
I'm so jealous of your creativity, and wish you luck in the future. :]

Take me to a midnight show.

this is so cool! I had no idea you could make furniture from a box. Yay for you and your adorable daughter.

I put a theme idea in craft challenges for cardboard furniture, because I think this idea is too cool. I'm working on some for my guest room right now.

Wow! I am sending a link to this to my daughter. she has an almost two year old, hardly any furniture and a crafty streak a mile long! She'll love it! Congrats on your good news! Much love and blessings to you both.

Thank you all for your nice comments.

 This is the first I've seen of this type, and it's amazing! I did some recycling , and built a queen headboard, but with other materials. I once had no furniture for a while either! I'm so glad you and your daughter don't have to live in an abusive environment anymore! Congrats for the full custody!!!
 I have an idea, it might make it stronger. Save some fabric, pick up some old bedsheets at the thrift stores as you can. Use it as a bonding layer. You can even use it as a final texture, even if it's painted. That will  help prevent paper ripples on the finish surface. It will also resist punctures more. Another thought on strength is to overlap smaller pieces of paper or fabric like paper mache'. It will also give an interesting texture. How about burlap as a finish fabric? I'm just getting all these ideas as I write this!
The stuff is real cheap! And talk about strong! I could see a lot of possibilities here!
Thanks for the inspiration!

Ha ha, i am back!! So things get.... unexpected lol. But we just moved into a beautiful and huge appartment, with a room designed to be my office and craft room. We are into wallpaper right now... and the building is really old so it's being remodeled... a lot of electricians, plumbers and cabinet makers are coming and going here.... Well, if it means brand new windows, door, electric plugs everywhere, new bathroom, then it worthes it!!

Thing is.. the place is full of cardboard boxes I need to empty but other than that, it's rather empty *ponders*.

I guess....  I will have to..... build new furniture!!!.... can't see another option !!

So there will be more to come, probably with fall holidays (within 2 weeks!! yeepy!!)

I am off to the drawing board!!
