Make Cushion For Metal Storage Bench
Metal Storage Bench – Use your decorating and sewing skills to make a pillow bench cushion for a cozy window seat, bench dining table or a coat rack in the lobby. The cushion will add an accent to the room, and provide seating at a low cost. A pillow bench cushion is a different one from other cushions because it is a solid rectangle of high density foam, rather than a puffy cushion made with loose stuffing. This may be a weekend project, less if you have experience with sewing.
Measure the metal storage bench for which you will make the cushion. Measure the bench for the one to make the cushion. Buy a 5-inch thick piece of high density foam 1 inch shorter and 1 inch narrower than the bench. Cut two pieces of extra-loft batting foam, each the same size as the cushion to cover the top and bottom. Measure the circumference of the mattress foam, then cut a piece of foam batting 5 inches wide, and the length of the circumference.
Spray each piece of foam batting with a thin layer of spray glue. Cut two pieces of decorator fabric each 2 inches longer and 2 inches wider than the metal storage bench cushion. Cut two pieces of decorator fabric every 2 inches longer and 2 inches wider than the bench cushion. Measure the perimeter of the top cover.
