Three is a Charm

I added in a third pillow into our kitchen bench. I had always had a third pillow but hadn’t really decided on a fabric, but fell for this stripe from InVu.

The one on the far right is the newest addition to the bench. Two pillows seemed not enough, but three is perfect.

I feel as though I can now say that the bench is now complete. 🙂 Ikea DIY Bench Project can be read here.

    I LOVE THIS!!! I agree with Kate, stripes, solid, and pattern is the perfect trio! And I was going to ask about the bench, but I see that you put the link to the tutorial!

    I love, love,love the bench and the 3 cushions are perfect. I read your D.I.Y on constructing the bench from IKEA top shelves. My question (because I worry about these kinds of things LOL) do you worry about weight issues on the bench? Say you had 3 big blokes sitting there (just imagining) is it strong enough to potentially take 250 – 300 kilos?

    P.S. I love that the pillows coordinate without being matchy-matchy!
