Jennifer from the blog TheChroniclesOfHome nests with ease and style! Here, she has written a tutorial on building an upholstered bench with nailhead trim. She says, “My great-grandfather was an upholsterer and I’m beginning to think this fondness for building things with my hands (and some awesome power tools) might be in my blood…It may look like a lot of work, and while not quite a leisurely afternoon project, I promise you the whole thing took me no more than 5-6 hours total.” This would be a great autumnal home sprucing up project – make it with our spiffy black and white tweed fabric, trim it with luxurious black braiding, and finish it off with decorative silver nailheads…and then cozy up with a cup of hot cider, plate of salted walnut shortbread cookies, and a mesmerizing mystery.
