DIY Mid Century Bench

My friend and I tackled making a mid century bench for her boyfriend's dining room.
We followed a blog that told us to pinch and staple the foam to the plywood which I had never done before....Has anyone done this with success? We found it yielded a bumpy finish... I don't recommend this method. Check out my full post: http://alifedesigned.blogspot.ca/2012/09/diy-mid-century-bench.html

    Nancy, this looks great. Definitely wouldn't have guessed it was a DIY job.

    Thanks Becky! I agree... I should have gone with my instincts and done it the way I thought was right. We didn't re make although I really want to!
    Thanks Steve!
    I forgot to mention, these pictures were taken before my friend's boyfriend stained

    Well it looks smooth to me. You must have done a great job of hiding it.

    Great job. I love the combination of the bench with the chairs at the dining table.

    I love mid century furniture and it looks so fresh mixed with the rustic table.
