Thank you for joining me on this decorating adventure!
I decided to look for a hall tree for her entry. Originally, I wanted a wooden one with a bench, but they were too wide for the space. I found a wrought iron one on craigslist (bought from Pier One) and it was just the right size (and a lot cheaper).
Fabric (facing down), batting, foam, and plywood.
Now, I am really good at taking something simple and making it difficult. This project was no exception. I decided to add tufting...and fabric covered buttons.
After I pushed the needle through the wood and other layers, I went through the button and back through the wood. I gently pulled, and stapled the string down.
It was worth the trouble! Isn't it cute?
I got to use my new stapler which I bought years ago but never used. I really gave it a workout!
If you want to see it on the bench, you will have to wait for the final reveal of my daughter's apartment!
Cost for this cushion project: less than $20!
