Is your living room or family room lacking a place to put your feet up? Take a design idea from Lauren at The Blesser House to create the perfect upholstered bench. Lauren takes you step-by-step with great directions and photos and a complete supply list to create a unique and comfortable bench.
If you are fairly new to do-it-yourself projects that require an extensive list of tools, enlist a friend with more experience to help and teach you. Chalk paint gives the project the look of weathered wood, and Lauren explains how to apply the paint in a dry brush fashion to give the piece texture.
Attaching the foam and fabric to the bench can be also be intimidating to the new do-it-yourselfer, but again, Lauren walks you through the process and explains in detail how to achieve the look of an expensive Restoration Hardware piece with a minimum of effort.
