Somehow, I never quite got around to making a cushion for the bench in our eating nook in our kitchen. One year later, I finally completed this project a few weeks ago. I love how it finishes off the space, not to mention that the seat is much more comfortable.
Here is what we started with. You can read about how we re-purposed our old wall unit to create this kitchen nook here.
I purchased the foam at Joann's. It was pricey because I wanted the 4" thick cushion, but I like how the thicker cushion looks.
For fabric, I used a drapery panel that I purchased at Lowes. I loved the pattern and the price was right.
I used a serrated knife to cut the foam to the correct size. After that, I wrapped both the batting and fabric around the foam. I wrapped it just like you would a present and secured it with safety pins. That way I can change it up at any time
if I get tired of this fabric when my kids destroy it.
I love how it finishes off the space. I wish I had done this sooner! So easy.
