Bench Pad DIY

A few months ago, I bought a sewing machine.
Il y a quelques mois j'ai acheté une machine à coudre.

I am pretty bad at sewing (for now I hope), so I stick with making pillows for now.
Je suis vraiment nulle en couture (seulement pour l'instant, j'espère!), 
alors pour l'instant je ne fais que des coussins.

I bought these two Expedit shelves from Ikea when we moved and planned to make bench pad to put on them.
J'ai acheté ces deux étagères expedit chez Ikéa quand nous avons emménagé dans notre nouvelle maison, et j'avais dans l'idée de faire des coussins pour les transformer en bancs.

So here we go. Alors c'est parti !
Things you will need / Les choses dont vous aurez besoin :
- Fabric / Tissu
- Foam / Mousse
- Scissors / Ciseaux
- Stapler / Agrafeuse
- MDF Board / Planche MDF

So, I went to the store to get two MDF boards, 10mm deep, the exact same measurement as the expedit shelves.
Alors je suis allée à Bricorama pour acheter deux planches MDF, de 10 mm d'épaisseur, de la même taille que l'étagère expedit.

I bought nice fabric, and foam and took out my stapler.
J'ai acheté du tissu, de la mousse et j'ai sorti mon agrafeuse.

I cut few pieces of foam the exact same size as the expedit, and one piece of fabric a little bigger than the size of the expedit.
J'ai coupé la mousse en plusieurs morceaux de la même taille que l'étagère. Et un morceau de tissu un peu plus grand que l'étagère.

Place your foam on the MDF board, and cover it with the fabric.
Posez les morceaux de mousse sur la planche, et couvrez les avec le tissu.

Staple everything on the MDF board.
Agrafez le tout sur votre planche MDF.

And enjoy your new comfy bench :)
Et appréciez votre nouveau banc bien confortable :)
