I gave up searching for the right bench to put in my entry way, after I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for and if I found something it was ridiculously expensive. Since we are DIY people I just got my hubs to build me a box with a lid that would open and close. I finished it off with a coat of paint and SUPER easy no-sew cushion. Don't you love the words NO-SEW?! I do!
2 in. foam (Jo-ann)
Stapler & staples (Home Depot)
*I forgot to get batting when I was at the store and I didn't have the time or patience to go back, so I make it without the batting and it turned out perfectly fine!
I started out by wiping the wood with a dry cloth and cutting the foam to fit on the piece of wood.
I sprayed the wood with adhesive and let it sit for about 2 minutes.
I then placed the already cut foam on the sprayed surface.
Drape the fabric on top if the foam.
Flip the whole thing over (you might need help with this), and staple to the back of the wood.
Nicely tuck in the corners and staple everything shut.
Have you seen my NO-SEW headboard?
