Bench Seat

We have a “nook” by the front door that looked pretty naked. It’s not very deep, nor is it that long, so we decided to put a bench there – something that would allow us to stash shoes, hats, the dog leash, etc. as we walk out the door. This bench not only fits the space perfectly, but it had great baskets that allows you to store items without them being seen. The only thing it lacked was a cushion…. until now.

Taking a (good) photo of this was more difficult that I anticipated, but you can get the general idea of what it looks like. I went with a 2″ foam, a home decor print from Joann’s (bonus it was 60% off, and a solid that goes around the edge to break up the print. I secured this one with Velcro so it was easy\easier to remove if I ever hand to launder it. Overall, I’m fairly pleased with the way it turned out, but I still don’t care for home decor sewing.
