The nursery is a pretty small room. Maybe 8’x9′ at the most. Which means we wanted furniture to do double duty. We got an Expedit bookcase in white from Ikea, turned it sideways, and added some legs to create a window seat with plenty of storage for toys (with pink bins from Target).
But of course, we needed a cushion to make the window seat comfortable. I wanted to use a piece of 3″ foam, but that was pretty expensive. So with 4 clearanced pillows from Ikea, I set to work.
What you’ll need:
*fabric (front and back pieces cut 1″ longer and 1″ wider than the length of your bench)
*pillows, stuffing, or foam the length of your bench
1. With right sides together, pin the two long sides of your fabric. Sew just those two sides.
2. Stuff your fabric tube with your stuffing/pillows/foam. Both of the short sides are open so you can maneuver to filling a little more easily.
3. Fold the short ends in about 1/2″ each. Pin and stitch closed.
The finished product:
