DIY Leather Bench Seat
A bench at the end of a bed is a convenient piece of furniture in a bedroom.
Buying a long bench or ottoman can get expensive, but you can easily make your own.
To get designer style on a shoestring, simply take the top off a timber stool and replace it with a woven leather seat. Or build a budget timber coffee table without the top.
Use the leather bench to hold cushions or a throw rug, or for books and a breakfast tray for when you want to read in bed.
BUDGET TIP Leather straps are more economical than buying upholstery hides, which come in pieces of several square metres.
Customise a timber bench with a woven leather seat in a colour to suit your bedroom
Once you get the hang of working with leather, you can branch out and weave a floor rug
