About This Project

2x4's and a 16" wood plank

I took Ana's amazing easy upholstered bench from modern to "magnifique," with a simple pleated skirt and silk upholstered seat cushion! Now our oddly shaped breakfast nook has a built-in that doesn't look so--well--built-in! Ana was right, it truly doesn't get EASIER than this :o)

Required Skill Level: 
Starter Project
Estimated Time Investment: 
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Finish Used: 
Build bench according to Ana's instructions then staple on your skirt with a pleated pattern of your choosing--just pre-sew the hem. Then attach upholstered seat cushion from the underside with two inch screws!
Estimated Cost: 
Free Scrap Wood!
