Wanna see how  I made a cushion for this DIY banquette bench without knowing how to sew?


For under $60 I was able to make this leather upholstered bench cushion.


Supplies Needed:

– plywood – Heavy-Duty Staple Gun  – 2 foam toppers  – insulating fabric  – upholstery fabric of choice  – utility knife

Once your plywood has been cut to bench dimensions, Staple your foam toppers to it (or the existing bench top). 

step 1

With utility knife, carefully cut off the excess overhang of the upholstery foam.

step 2

Place upholstery fabric face down, then insulating fabric, then bench top (all face down on a large, flat working surface).

step 3

Wrap and staple the insulating fabric to the plywood bench top.

step 4

Now that insulating fabric has been stapled smoothly and somewhat tightly, you can now wrap and staple your upholstery fabric.
