A winning tutorial: easy, fast and gorgeous.
Some bloggers are amazing, and this is one of them: Carry from ‘Two Friends, Two Cities’. She created this lovely bench from start –to – finish in just 2 hours for the tiny budget of $65. I actually just bought this exact same bold marine blue/white stripped fabric from IKEA, as well as some matching, sturdy, thin-striped red/white fabric. I was wondering what to do with it…..
Ballards Designer Bench
Sometimes all we need is an idea (or an obsession rather) and then someone who triggers us into action.
It never occurred to me that making such a bench would be so simple as there’s no backing. Just a plank with batting, a cover and four legs. Easy!
This essentially is a knock-off of a $599 designer bench from Ballards.
(image on the left) This was it. Amazing legs, btw, but for that price, they better be nice!
Overall, I think these two benches look remarkably similar, and I feel inspired to make my own.
