We have a bench seat that sits in our dining area and has beautiful light coming through the windows which makes it a perfect spot for reading, playing guitar or catching some zzz's. But since moving into our home five years ago it has just become a spot for dumping school bags, work bags and washing that needs folding.
After a bit of researching on Pinterest for styling and googling on "how to make a bench seat cover" I headed off to Clark Rubber and Ikea.
I went for a high density foam which wasn't cheap but so worth it.
I opted for a charcoal fabric as I really liked the look of this Norwegian style bench seat.
It also fits in with the splashes of red I have through the kitchen/dining area. I have a Florence Broadhurst Ikeda design splashback in red and a New York print.

No more washing or school bags for this seat now! It's just created a beautiful area to socialise or relax.
