senseless; impractical; totally unsound: a crazy scheme.

Sometimes I get something crazy in my head that I think I can do. Currently I'm contemplating seating in my future dining room. (Yeah, I know--nothin' like jumpin' the gun.) I would love to have an upholstered bench in there. Aaaand here's the crazy part: I keep thinking I can make one. So I scour Craigslist for something/anything that I could rig into a beaut like one of these:

Fitzgerald Upholstered Bench, Rustic Yacht Stripe

How hard do you think it'd be to make one of those puppies? Is it even possible or am I shootin' way too high? Am I crazy?


  1. Oh I bet you could make it. Does Ana White not have a plan? I think she does for upholestered (?) chairs.

  2. I have no doubts that you can make it. Being my ever practical self, I wonder how it will stand up to two little boys.


  3. Kat,
    after seeing your ottoman I'm pretty sure you could totally re-upholster a bench. Go for it!

  4. I think you should go for it! I have done few pieces in the past.I read a lot on how to before I did anything. It always helps. Choose small print or fabrics that do not have to be matched. It would make your job easier!!! But again, you have done a splendid piece with shapes already! Have fun!

  5. I totally think you can do it! The CRAZY part would be keeping it clean with two boys! OMW. Our chairs get so dirty (and I have girls!). And that first picture, it looks like a slipcover?? See the wrinkle on the corner?

  6. I bet you could do it! After the great ottoman transformation, it's doable for you! :) And great minds think alike on settee posts! :)
