26 IT’S A BENCH PRESS!

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Style Inspiration -

Re­fresh a sec­ond­hand bench or ot­toman with a patch­work of fab­rics. Cut rec­tan­gles and squares from table­cloths, feed sacks and cloth­ing that share com­mon colours. Al­low­ing ex­tra fabric all around for sta­pling to the wrong side, stitch the pieces to­gether. Cen­tring the fabric and stretch­ing as you go, sta­ple it to the un­der­side of the bench, al­ter­nat­ing be­tween sides as you work. If your bench has a base, piece to­gether a strip long enough to en­cir­cle the bench base. Se­cure it to the in­side with more sta­ples.
