A bench redo...easy as 1-2-3

Bench seats and chair seats are so easy to recover, anyone can do it.   This one needed redoing because the fabric didn't quite match our bedroom colors anymore and I've been wanting to change it for quite some time.  

I found this satiny chocolate quilted fabric at the Hobby Lobby store on the clearance rack for only $7.00, a very large piece, too!  Just what I was looking for.
You will have to measure and cut the fabric to size, get your screw driver and staple gun, and you are ready to go. That's all you need.  

Remove the screws from the bottom of the bench, take off the old cover, or let it on, either way, and staple the new fabric in place.  Put the screws back, and you're finished!

Easy as 1 - 2 - 3.

Your bench looks your new fabric. Thanks for the instructions. I have a bench I need to recover, but I haven't found any fabric yet. I'll check out HL they always have a nice selection.
Have a great weekend,

It turned out so nice. I love the fabric you chose.
I have an old chair and fabric waiting for this type of transformation. I just need to get a staple gun.
Your header looks so pretty. The yellow birdhouse is gorgeous.
