Space is often in demand in modern homes and sometimes we need to make sacrifices when choosing furniture, but the beauty of making a project yourself is that you can customize your own solution. The Get It Done team build a seat that doubles as a mobile storage unit. They also chat to an upholstery expert on how best to tackle the upholstery work.
