I have a plain wood bench in my craft room/office. It’s uncomfortable since it has no padding and it’s just blah to look at, so I decided to give it a makeover.
I prefer projects that are cheap and easy so this was perfect. I got the fabric and padding from Joann’s on sale. I had to buy more fabric than I needed since it’s a 4′ long bench but I plan on using the left over for another project later. For the fabric I used on this project it was about $5. I bought 1/2″ thick foam and only got four feet since it doesn’t need to be bigger than the bench. And since the bench was only about 14 inches wide I was able to cut the foam in half lengthwise and just stack them to make an 1″ thick pad for $5.13. The staple gun and staples were provided by my hubby.
For a little over ten bucks to make this bench a little more fashionable, I think it was worth it.
