Mad mod upholstered bench
This upholstered bench had been languishing at Home Anthology for awhile.
The fabric on it was not awful—a lightweight cotton with a print of little orange-red shapes. But it was bland. And what you can’t see here is that the elastic webbing was totally shot under the upholstery.
After stripping it down completely, I put on new elastic webbing with my trusty pneumatic stapler and a webbing stretcher.
The webbing is stretched taut and makes a good base for the 1″ thick super-duper-high-density foam that I added over it.
The foam is on the top of the bench only. The rest is covered with thick poly batting for a lush, padded look.
Nini of H|A chose this burnt orange/hot pink textured wool fabric with a small scale pop art pattern.
My camera kind of buzzed out at all that hot color and I couldn’t get a good overall photo.
We put it out on the floor and it sold in five minutes. No joke. Five minutes.
