Rockin' Moroccan Corner Bench

This free standing banquette corner bench was fashioned from Ana's upholstered bench design. I made modifications to her design to fit my space and the 4" upholstery foam that I purchased on-line from Amazon in 4x30x72" sheets. Designing it to be 18" off the ground allowed for a multitude of play options from American Girl dolls to Barbies. The addition of rope lighting underneath held on with cable ties allows wonderful illumination and spurs creativity and desire to entertain imaginative play at night. The seating is wide and sturdy and even though it is housed in a play room it is very comfortable for adults. Of special note; the upholstered back rest and skirt were made with one queen sized quilt, eliminiating the need for sewing a hem by utilizing the hemmed edge. The cushions were made from one king sized duvet cover and no sewing was needed. To finish the look custom piping was added which required sewing. Confident that when it will inevitably be jumped on that it can take it and will not come crashing down. The back rest was attached to the wall with this bracket I purchased at Lowes for $10.00.
