I found the pretty striped canvas fabric at our local Walmart fabric department for under $7.00 a yard. The tricky part was deciding how to upholster the bench as there was an area that needed filling to bring the cushion up to the top of the seat. We took a large welt cording, covered it and applied it to the wooden edges both front and back. Then cleaned up inside with a gimp and the cushion is actually removable and finished with a knife edge. The photo does not show the work, but the back of the bench is upholstered with the stripe fabric so this could be used away from a wall as a free standing little bench. This is now done and waiting for a new home at Carol's Corner in Gainesboro, Tennessee. Email me if you need measurements or more information.
