Recently, on Facebook, I saw a project that I knew MANY of you would love, so I asked Colleen (the original creator) to talk about her steps here!
Playroom Storage Bench
(I went to Menards and bought a piece of plywood and my husband cut it to the size, 15×72. FYI, I heard that both Lowes and Home Depot can cut plywood in the store.)
(I went to Joann Fabrics, they will only cut the length so I had to cut the width at home. I used 2 inch foam but you can use whatever thickness you prefer.)
(Also from Joann Fabrics. I got 1/4 in thickness, again it’s personal preference.)
Fabric of your choice
(Take your measurements (LxW) add the depth of the foam (i.e. 2 in x2) then add at least 2 inches to wrap around. I think I got 3 yards.)
Expedit bookcase from IKEA (designed to go horizontal or vertical – for this project, horizontal)
Storage bins from Target
- Alternate option; cover staples with left over fabric and glue in place.
