It has been at the foot of our bed, all but forgotten and certainly not high on the list of “MUST-DO’s”!!
|This foam was part of a sofa a cushion that I no longer use.
I cut and pieced it together. Reduce – Reuse- recycle!!!
when I got to the end, I wanted to cover up the area where I had lots of stapling…I took a piece of the batting and glued it on top.
|I took the fabric and folded it over and stapled it down underneath.|
View of the bench, PRE NAILHEAD TRIM…I love the gray and yellow!!!!
I drew a line across the bottom edge of the sides, and followed that line with the nailhead trim. I discovered that if I used my needle nose pliers, that I could move faster and I avoided
hitting my fingers with the hammer.
I purchased a magnetized tack hammer for this project
($6.50@ Lowes ) and I am IN LOVE with the difference it makes!
Because I pieced together two pieces of foam, I ended up with a teeny lump, but hey, this is going in MY bedroom, and NO ONE will notice it…In fact…my husband may not even notice that I upholstered it to begin with!!!!
|My Son Cooper was a HUGE help, I held the tacks with my pliers and he did the tapping!
It made a difference following the pencil line, I have done it without…
and I would not recommend it.
I love how it looks, especially, when placed at the foot of my/our bed!!! I am so excited about how great it all looks together.
that never materialized (HAH…no pun intended!!!).
It is most assuredly a great weekend project!
Take a look around… do you have any benches that might be improved with upholstery?
I am already looking for my next project.
Have a Great Weekend!
