Tufted Bench

Here is the before of my grandfathers bench that I inherited.

Look how this tufted bench is coming along! You'll have to wait to see the finished product until next week because I ran out of button covers... Hopefully I can sew a pillow and my fiance can hang the mirror to finish the entry way for the full effect!

Cover the screw heads with button covers.

Screw a washer and wood screw at every corner until it grabs the wood underneath.

Cover the bench using a staple gun.

Sew them together with a 1/4 seem using heavy duty thread.

Start by cutting out squares. I used 7 inch squares out of painters drop cloth.
