SITTIN’ PRETTY

Do It Yourself - - What To Do With -

Ken, a com­mer­cial con­trac­tor, of­ten part­ners with Erin on home projects, in­clud­ing this raw-edge bench, right, used as din­ing room seat­ing. Ken sanded smooth the top of a 3½-inch-thick slab of wal­nut and at­tached me­tal legs Erin found on Etsy. Erin made the seat cush­ion us­ing a Kufri cot­ton fab­ric that she sewed with an en­ve­lope clo­sure and in­serted a pre­made pil­low form. She clev­erly se­cured the cush­ion to the bench with two skinny belts she found on­line. “I love cre­at­ing projects that serve a func­tion in daily life,” Erin says. “I get such sat­is­fac­tion out of putting to good use the things I’ve made.”
