My original plan with this banquette was to just make covers for the pink cushions. BUT, when I took them off to give them a good clean, I literally had to peeeeel them off. BARF. The underside of them all were covered in grease and rice. No joke. It was so nasty. So, I put gloves on, put them in the back of my van, and brought them to the dump. EWWWWW.
On to plan B… Call my Dad!
First, I made a stencil with kraft paper of the 3 pieces I wanted to make.
Then, I headed to Pop’s house to go lumber shopping and cut our plywood to size and get Baba to watch the kiddies while I go fabric hunting… My Favourite thing on earth to do!!
At home, I cut the foam to size and used spray adhesive to adhere it to the plywood.
Next, I layed out my fabric and batting and went bananas stapling. I knew 2 years in Cut ‘n Paste school would come in handy.
Every great piece of art needs a signature!
