Treat Yourself, Seat Yourself: Upholstered Bench DIY

Who

Tina, Homepolish designer

Grab some fabric (we suggest beautiful, durable mud cloth), follow our instructions and upgrade your space with a bench you made yourself.

We have a new one for your Cool Interior Ideas list. After banana leaf print wall decor, copper details and hairpin legs add “mud cloth bench.” The traditionally handmade Malian black and white graphic fabric is super beautiful and durable. Perfect for furniture upholstery, pillow covers or just draping over your sofa until you have time for an afternoon DIY (hey, we know how time flies).

When our designer Tina casually mentioned that she was thinking about making a mud cloth bench we were all, “CAN WE COME?! And bring our camera?” Follow Tina’s step-by-step instructions and make your own amazing bench.
