Farmhouse-Style Bench

Materials: Lack coffee table, antique brass decorative upholstery nails, twin size foam mattress topper, 2 1/2 yards of burlap, 2 1/2 yards of non-bleached muslin.

I recently finished building a larger coffee table and I had the standby Ikea Lack one sitting in a corner, useless and ugly. My husband didn't want me to throw it out, because he hates waste, so I perused Ikeahackers and few others websites for ideas. He had also asked for a place to put his shoes near the door, and a bench to put them on. I decided to kill two birds with one Ikea Hack.

I bought the cheapest twin foam top I could find. Then, I purchased the burlap, muslin and upholstery nails at a local fabric store. (FWIW, I've used a couple of upholstery nails brands and Dritz is the best brand I've found in the local DIY shops.) Both burlap and muslin are cheap! I actually preferred the cheapest muslin they had because it matched the burlap so much better than the more refined and bleached ones. For less than $20, I had all I needed.
