Picking The Right Bench

Measure first

Before you buy a bench make sure you size up the space with a tape measure to make sure it will fit.

Match your furniture

To create a sense of harmony, buy a bench that is the same color or type of wood as the rest of the furniture in your room.

Use your bench for storage

Choose a bench with storage built in below the seat, as this can be used to store bedding or clothing.

Be creative

Benches are not difficult to build and with some basic carpentry skills, you can create one to your own requirements.

Decorate with cushions

Benches pair well with scattered cushions, which can soften their appearance and make them much more inviting.

Elegant Tufted Bench With Hidden Storage

I have been dreaming of getting a tufted bench that I could place at the foot of my bed for years now. The only problem it was always ridiculously priced out of my range. Home decorations may just might be the most expensive part of home ownership, Hahaha. So when given the opportunity to work with Osborne Wood Products I was so excited. I knew right away what I wanted to build. This is one of my favorite DIY projects to date. Here’s how I did it.


Every time I go to my local Goodwill I find something that can be upcycled. Most the time a quirky desk, headboard or table catches my eye. Usually something tattered and abused and I feel like me bringing it home to slick up is rescuing it. Giving it an Afterlife! Well, one fine morning, walking in saying hi to my friends at the counter, the manager said, "Michelle, I have a treat for you!". Moses brought me over to not one, but two BRAND NEW end of the bed benches! With the TAGS! TWO OF THEM! I said, "OH, MY! How am I supposed to upcycle these?" He said "What if your Unicorn stuff could color the fabric?" I hadn't thought about that! I figured what the heck. I'll give it a try! I did and I couldn't be happier or more excited about the results! So today I'm here with step by step instructions with how to SPiT on FABRiC.
