My goodness it has been a long week! For some reason my son has not been sleeping through the night. Not sure if he is going through a growth spurt again or if he is getting sick, but I (we) need some consistent sleep. He woke up at 1am last night and did not go back to sleep until 7am! Today, I am a coffee drinker. ;)
Alrighty, the bench cushion for the mudroom bench is super easy. If you already have a bench, but your bottom would like something more plush to sit on, this tutorial may help. ;) I did try looking for a pre-made bench cushion, but I could not find one in the desired length or style that I liked, so off to JoAnns, I went. :)
|Fabric, batting, foam and plywood.|
Found and fell in love with the fabric. Even on sale it was more than I wanted to spend, but I knew it would be the prefect choice for the overall look of the bench and mudroom, that I was going for.

The batting I picked up at JoAnns, as well as the two inch thick foam. As far as its thickness, it seems to be working just fine. I thought I would feel the plywood underneath on the completed cushion, but I do not. I did not have to purchase the plywood since it was extra that I had in the garage. Yes, we have lots of miscellaneous pieces of wood.

I then used some spray glue to attached the foam to the plywood.

I had some trouble with the corners of the batting. When it came time for the fabric, I pretended I was wrapping a present. :)

When done, flip over and place in desired location. Add a couple of throw pillows and ta-da! You now have a fancy and comfortable bench seat cushion. :)
See, an easy project to do late at night. It took me about and hour and a half. If any of you have any questions or ideas, sound off. I would love to hear them. :)
Have a fun weekend! Remember to play! :)
