About This Project

Cabinet Grade Plywood, Select Pine for trim

This build seems so long ago...it was over a year ago, and it's what got me on my building kick. I'm just now getting around to transferring my brag posts to the new website. It was my very first build, and one that I'm still extremely proud of. I'll forever be grateful to Ana for giving me the direction to do this so that I had the courage and confidence to know that I can do / build anything!

Required Skill Level: 
Estimated Time Investment: 
Day Project (6-9 Hours)
Finish Used: 
I applied a few coats of minwax stain and then a coat of polyurethane on top.
Estimated Cost: 
$65 for material + stain


This looks awesome! I love the bench pillow. Any chance you can tell me where you found that middle basket? I'm having such a hard time finding baskets that fit!

Thanks for the compliment! The bench pillow was my first attempt at no sew sewing. It's my favorite kind of sewing! Haha!

I got all of the baskets from Michael's. They had ones that said a bunch of different things on there and the size worked out perfectly. Hope that helps!

I am so impressed with this blog and all the people who made this project. I have been wanting this exact thing and my husband wants to make it. Can you send the info on making the bench pillow? Thanks
