DIY Bench Cushion

Hope you are having a great week so far!
My Mother-In-Law has been staying with us and she sewed the perfect bench cover for the dinning room.

I had just enough leftover to sew a small pillow!
I found the fabric awhile back and fell in love with it.  I knew it would be a perfect match for the bench.

The bench was purchased at Cost Plus

    If I am right, and your MIL is from IL…she is soooo lucky to be there with you this week. We are dying over here. It is sooo hot and humid. I can't even take being outside for 5 min. Ugh. Let me tell you, there have been some bad hair days this week! Lol!

  12. You've got to love a mother-in-law who comes to your house and sews!!!! Looks beautiful.

  13. I love that fabric too! It's just a tad too light for my dining room or I would have ordered it last week! My mother-in-law always wants me to give her a list of projects to do when she comes and it is such a blessing!

  14. super sweet! i love the bench in the dining room, i have one in the kitchen. the fabric is perfect too! hope you are well, sorry i've been absent, just busy with the kiddos 🙂 xo susan

  15. Kristin, I love the fabric on the cushion and love the style of the bench. Thanks for joining my party.

  16. Oooh, that's too funny, I had that exact fabric in my hands last week and was considering buying it to make a bench cover too!!! I decided against it only because I was not sure where this bench is going yet. Brilliant minds…

  17. Love it,love your room…just tweeked our d.r.but it did not give me the buzz yours just did! I am happy to see someone else with darker furniture,I thought I was the only one!!! x0

  18. Gorgeous, and how strange, we have identical dining room layouts! Lucky you to have a seamstress stop by and get to work!! 🙂

  19. So pretty. I'm glad you put where you got the bench. I was going to ask you myself. We use to have a World Market in my city but it went out of business. 🙁 Their website doesn't say the length and sitting height of the bench. Do you mind letting me know?

  20. Oh, this really is perfect! The fabric, the staircase, the arched door. The whole room is great!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and following. It led me to your blog and I'm your newest follower.

  21. I absolutely love your dining room! I've been wanting a bench in mine. Maybe once my hubby sees yours he'll understand what I'm talking about! BEAUTIFUL!
