34K Views
I don't know about you, but every time I see a bed with tufted headboard or a tufted bench I completely fall in love with the piece of furniture. There is just something so elegant and sophisticated about anything that is tufted. So I had been dreaming of this tufted bench for the longest time! I originally saw it in a magazine. Then when I saw it in the store my jaw dropped. It was so incredibly expensive! There was no way on my small budget I could afford that. So in in true ToolBox Divas Style I set out to make my own tufted bench. In doing to I came up with the worlds easiest tufting hack. I will show you how you can use this technique to create a diamond tufted headboard or bench or what ever piece of tufted furniture of your dreams. And NO sewing needles or threads or even peg boards required. So please, don't be intimidated by this. You Got This!
