If you'll remember the seat is a very long diamond shape so we measured a few times and then drew it up on our MDF board.
Then it was time to cut.
Then we cut our 2" foam to the same size as our board and glued it down (just so it would be easier to keep in place while covering it with fabric). Covering this thing was a lot more challenging then we had anticipated. The corners were so difficult and I did not want it to look wrinkly and ugly (which is why I got no pictures of this part!) so it took us awhile. After working with it and trying different folds and tucks, we used our trusty staple gun to keep in all in place. Here's how it looked before:
I love it! Now how do I keep the kiddos from ruining it? I got the fabric here.
Time to start accessorizing the mantle.
