I saw a bedroom bench similar to this in the store, but they wanted way more for it than I wanted to spend. So I thought, “You have a wood shop, just make one.” I attempted to style it after the rather beefy poster bed that it will sit in front of. This is my first attempt at upholstery or working with leather (thanks Youtube).

You did a great job on the bench! It’s interesting that your first adventure in upholstery was a tufted bench. Mine was the same—a tufted piano bench—about 30 years ago . . . and it still looks good.
