When Lucy was just a couple of months old, I thought it was cute watching her trying to get up on the furniture. I'd lay cushions on the floor to make stairs for her to climb her way up on the sofa. Soon no stairs were needed and Lucy made her home on the sofa. A sofa I built and upholstered but could never decide on what kind of back cushions I wanted so I just used the bottom cushions (aka stairs) from a previous sofa. Needless to say I never got the new cushions made and after a few years of Lucy and Sable the sofa was curb side.
