A few weeks ago I decided to attempt to 'temporarily' cover my leather dining room table bench. I say temporarily because a certain man who lives in my house just so happens to love leather and wasn't sold on the idea of a 'skirt' covering his favorite leather bench (as you'll see below, I did it anyway, smile). After seeing a few pictures of skirted tables and benches on some of my favorite blogs, I decided to go for it. Photo from Willow Decor.
This skirted table that Artie from Color Outside of the Lines made was also part of my inspiration in making this bench skirt. Before: Using some extra beige twill fabric, I sewed a few pieces together for the seat, then attached a one-inch wide elastic piece into a seam that I sewed by hand (unfortunately) into the top and voila... After:
