Make Your Own No Sew Window Seat Cushion!

This is my favorite DIY project that Prescott and I have done thus far.  I know some of y'all have seen this, but for those of you who haven't... here is the totally cool and easy tutorial on how to make your own window seat cushion without having to sew a single thread or having to throw down a ton of cash for a custom made one!

The Finished Product

Before

After

Of course Chauncey, again, takes credit for most of the hard work ;)

Supplies you will need:

  • Plyboard (2 @ 55 x22 inches) or whatever size you need for your space

  • Fabric (4 yards)

  • Poly foam (2 inch thick) and cut with your serrated knife to the appropriate width

  • Batting

  • Wood glue

  • Scissors

  • Serrated knife

  • Staple gun



  • Put the wood glue all over your board and attach one of the poly foam cushions to it

    Repeat with the other board and polyfoam piece
    Let them dry at least 10 minutes or more

    Lay board and attached foam (poly face down) on top of the batting and staple neatly to the board.
    Repeat to other board.

    Your board should look like this after you are done.

    Now do the same thing again but with the fabric to each board.
    Tada... you are done and should have 2 finished fabric wrapped boards to put on your window seat!
