Step One

If applicable remove existing trim from bench using a pair of needle nose pliers.

Peel back the layers and throw old materials.

Step Three

Wipe seat area clean.

Step Four

Turn bench over onto the piece of foam. Trace the shape of the bench top onto the foam using a marker. Remove bench.

Step Five

Cut foam shape using scissors. Place cut out shape onto bench. Adjust the fit of the foam on the bench by cutting away any excess foam.

Step Six

Protect surfaces around the bench then remove foam and spray top area with Super 77 spray adhesive.  Place foam back on the bench. The spray glue will hold the foam in place.

Step Seven

Place Cushion Wrap over the foam.  Leave 1” overage of batting on all sides. Cut to size. Remove batting. Spray foam with Super 77 adhesive. Place batting onto foam, be sure to position batting down accurately.

Step Eight

Staple Cushion Wrap in place with staple gun. Pleat corners. Trim off excess Cushion Wrap.

Step Nine

Place cut piece of denim fabric over batting. Staple in place using staple gun. Tuck fold each corner. Staple in place.

Step Ten

Trim off excess denim material with scissors.

Step Eleven

Create the trim by folding the material in thirds.  Fold the remaining edge over to form a neat trim. Iron trim to hold folds in place.

Step Twelve

Using fabric glue, adhere the trim around cushion edges to hide staples.

Step Thirteen

To create the fur cover, measure the cushion length, width and depth. Add additional length so fur cover drapes slightly over the benches legs. Follow the cutting instructions and cut the fur cover to size. Fluff fur by lightly shaking. Place over cushion.
