When it comes to DIY-ing home decor, there are some pieces you usually just leave to upcycling projects. Maybe its the size, or the need for power drills, but it can be daunting to DIY a piece of furniture from scratch.

“Um, no!” I say! The bigger the project, the better the fun! That was my attitude anyways when it came to this velvet tufted bench we made for the Hello Room of the new office. It is a challenging project in that there’s lots of supplies and it does take a few hours BUT the results are soooo pretty and your BUTT will love it!

Check out the tutorial for this tufted treasure above and some pictures of its pristine state (as of yet unbesmirched by our tired booties) below!
