If you had to choose between dishing out almost a grand for an upholstered bench from Horchow or making your own for a mere $50, I think it’s safe to say we’d all head straight for the hardware store.
Nan from You Could Make That shows that it doesn’t take an experienced carpenter/upholsterer to make a bench or ottoman from scratch.
Nan simply used a piece of plywood and table legs for the base and then got a seamless upholstered finish by adding a pleated skirt and decorative trim.
Not only is the end product beautiful but super strong and sturdy!
Nan was inspired by the Suzanni Bench from Horchow.
