Bench Seat Example

No Sew Bench Seat with black steel hairpin legsBench Builder Session

This is a demonstration session on how to make a bench seat using our popular “no sew” method. Great for DIYers that are looking for a fast and professional finish without going near a sewing machine!

Julie will guide you step-by-step through creating a fabulous piece of signature furniture that you can use in your living space, entry, dining room or at the foot of a bed!

This is our fastest upholstery project by far with just a few simple steps involved.

This is your opportunity to see how easy it is to make a bench seat before you buy a kit from our online store.

Our kits come with instructions and are easy to follow.
