Reddit user turns old mattress into a couch for $100

This is amazing

A Reddit user has raised the bar when it comes to turning trash into treasure.

Using old items he had around his home, Phil Vandelay of Hamburg, Germany created a couch for about $100 – and we want one. 

“Finished Product first. I built this Industrial couch, mostly out of reclaimed materials and I only spent around 100$ on it,” he wrote on Imgur alongside the images.

Sharing the details on Youtube, Vandelay said: “I really wanted a couch for my apartment so I decided to make my own. I happened to have a bunch of stuff (trash) left over that I recycled into this thing, mainly two old mattresses. I used the springs from one of them for additional padding and the foam from another for the cushions. The base is made from reclaimed wood beams I got for free. The only things I bought for this was the steel tubing (45x45x2mm, about 50€) and the fabric for the covers, again about 50€. My friend Leo helped with the layout and sewing for those (thanks!). The end result is super comfy!”
