I love rustic furniture (let’s face it, I love all furniture). Some friends gave me a rustic-style bench for our entry way a few years ago. It’s perfect for the space. I love the grain of the wood, the color, it’s perfect. But since my hope is that people will actually sit on it from time to time, I determined it needed a little padding. Since I don’t sew (as you know from my recent post on diy no sew pillows, which you can see here), I needed another method for which to create some cushions for this awesome bench.
They were super easy to make. I purchased some poly form chair pads from Hobby Lobby so that the cushions would be flat (they’re just $1.99 a piece at the Hob!). Then, using a similar method as wrapping presents, I folded the fabric over the pads and used my hot glue gun to finish off the sides so they’d stay in place.
I chose four different fabrics that complimented one another. Once I was finished glueing all of the fabric in place, I arranged the cushions on the bench in a way that I thought looked the best. Tada! No more soar bottoms. Even our cute little pup Oliver likes them.
