Guess What These DIY Cushions Are Made From?

In this week's AT Boston House Tour (Two Friends Create a Blended Home), we revealed Sarah and Megan's lovely, homey apartment which they decorated and furnished almost entirely with trash finds and secondhand treasures. But Sarah really wowed us with her DIY floor cushions and bolster cushion filled with...

Her old futon stuffing! Once the futon had lived its full and useful life as a bed, Sarah decided to keep it alive by chopping and cutting it up to make more bite-size futon cushions. And she reports that strung together and covered with layers of blankets, they make a perfectly comfortable guest bed. Brilliant! How else could you store a guest bed in a such a usable arrangement. The pillows are employed constantly as additional seating in their living room.

Do you have any surprising materials that you've used to fill pillows and cushions?
