Diy: Diamond tufted bench

Hello, is there anyone still here, hello, hello??!! I have been MIA for a while, this happened because... life moves so fast and after so many months of teaching at school and teaching at home.. I just got tired.. ..Now I am back and I want to show you what I have been up to: I made my own bench!! Yaaay!!
I have used the same technique for the diamond tufts as I did for the headboard here, and I hurt my fingers again...:) the pulling of the buttons is so difficult!! I used my toile fabric I score a couple of months ago from a store that brings their fabrics from Germany. The legs still need to be painted, I think I am going to not paint them, I will leave them nude. And guess what?! A month ago I ordered two pillow covers and look how beautiful they go with my bench!!

I love the depth of the tufts, the foam I used was 10 cm thick .

I love that both the toile fabric of the bench and the fabric in the pillows have a special sheen , 
it is almost like satin...

I still need something for under the bench, maybe some baskets, a magazine/book arrangement, and for above the initial plan was this:

This is going to be changed... too much blue and the arrangement is also too tall, I think... we'll see where my inspiration takes me... thoughts?



  1. Wow! I can't believe you made this bench. It's gorgeous and I love that you are leaving the legs bare. They look so great as is! Congrats! As far as the arrangement I think you are right a little too much blue and maybe take the top two pictures down. Good luck!

  2. Hola amiga querida !,, me encanto ese banco , el trabajo del capitone no es nada f├ícil , te felicito por el acabado y me gusto mucho esa tela toile ¡,

  3. I love that bench! Great job!

  4. Ti-a iesit super bancuta! Cat timp ti-a luat? Vreau sa ma bag si eu la o treaba de genu', am un otoman si as vrea sa-l retapitez, dar sa-l fac stil Chesterfield. Inca stau si ma gandesc, daca sa ma inham sau doar sa-l retapitez simplu, asa cum si este in momentul de fata!

    Si apropo, imi place cum ai lasat picioarele natur!
    Te pup!

    1. Ma bucur ca ti place, Catalina. Am facut bancuta intr o zi, aproximativ 6 ore, nu mai stiu exact, ca am luat si pauze (de pus masa, de schimbat copiii, nu de relaxare:)). Daca ai tot ce ti trebuie ( capsator, ata de tapiterie, ac mare, daca faci cu nasturi), daca ti place ce faci si vrei sa ai rezultatul cat mai repede, time flies!! Eu sunt foarte multumita, plus ca am facut economie, bancuta e facuta de la zero, partea cu lemnul a facut o sotul, iar finisajul, eu. Iar daca tu ai deja otomanul, jumatate din drum l ai parcurs deja:) Good luck, sa mi arati si mie rezultatul!


Have an opinion? Do share!! Thanks!!
