  1. How adorable! I like that blue color too .

  2. That is really cute. Is that something that is purely for decoration or are people able to sit on it? I assume it is just for decoration because of using foam but didn’t know if there is something solid under the foam to make it durable enough to sit on it!

  3. Such a great DIY and it seems pretty simple too!
