Recreating the ALLIGATOR Couch from Despicable Me with my daughter Olivia

My 2-year-old daughter Olivia is really into Despicable Me and the Minions right now so I thought it would be fun for us to take a break from the movie watching and try to create our own massive 8-foot version of the awesome alligator couch from the movie. She loves helping me paint it. 

Starting to work on a recreation of the room now with the chevron floor pattern as a foundation.
