So, I said that I would be back today with the before pictures on the Guest Bedroom. Oops, make that Friday. Ha. Anyways, I wanted to let you in on an AMAZING secret (or at least an amazing find) that I’ve used and LOVED! When we do new projects like making a headboard, a bench seat or even a loft… you always need foam. I have two options that I use and really have found to work. Hence the title, “Where to Buy Cheap Foam for Your Projects.”
Year before last, Luke and I made a headboard for our master bedroom.
We did it so cheaply, because I had bought mattress pads on clearance at Target. Every summer, Target gets their dorm line ramped up. Come September, they clearance everything on it. The mattress pads have been in that line and cleranced the last two years! I regularly get them for about $6! I found this one at Kmart for $11 which is still a fantastic deal.
The only thing you have to know when you use these pads is that you have to double the foam. The ridges need to face each other so that that you have a smooth top to upholster.
My second go-to place to buy large pieces of foam is Home Depot.
Its a 3 inch pad (and I think they have 2 inch as well) that is 72 inches long by 24 inches wide. Get this… its $25! Seriously, that’s the best deal ever. We just used this foam in our DIY Loft and will use it again this summer for a project that we are planning.
I’m all about saving money on things so I really love these two options. What money saving tricks or tips do you have?
