Our former office is in the process of being transformed into a playroom for our little spirited kiddo. I knew I wanted to recreate the IKEA expedit-turned-benches seating in Jen's playroom since we are super limited on space. The only problem? Our closest IKEA is a cool 5 hours away. Bummer sauce. BUT, never fear when you have THE most talented father-in-law in all the land who can make anything in the world.
I showed him what I wanted, and we customized the height, depth, and length to fit perfectly in our room. And within a few weeks time, thanks to Grandpa Dan, Ther-bear had two custom benches just waiting to be upholstered.
I decided on this fabric to bring some color into an otherwise very dark room. This weekend Dan brought up his fancy air compressor staple gun and basically upholstered both benches on his own.
I helped just a smidge.
Dan's quite the perfectionist and vetoed my method of "christmas present" upholstery ends. He took the lead on the ends and made them look really finished. He's the best.
We've still got a lot to do to pull this room together but it's come a long way in just a few days!
