So, I've been a little slack in publishing this post. I finished my first set of chairs probably over a month ago, and then life happened. I started other projects in my class, but I am absolutely in love with my cushion chairs. They absolutely make my classroom look adorable and my coworkers keep complimenting how cozy the room looks.
- 1/2 yd. of fabric for each cushion
- Adhesive spray
- Staple gun (& staples. hehe)
- Sewing machine (optional)
- Crafting supplies (scissors, pen, etc.)

2. Roll out the polyfoam and lay your board on top. Trace the board to get a cushion the same size of the board. Then, cut another piece slightly smaller. The first set I made, I took an inch off the sides. The second set, I used the leftover material at the top of the material.

3. Spray the wood with adhesive spray. Give it a sec to get a bit tacky and then place the smaller cushion on the wood. Spray the top side of the smaller cushion and place the larger cushion on top.

5. Next, lay the fabric face down and place the seat face down on the fabric. Pull the fabric tight. You may want help to hold the fabric while you staple. I had hubby's hands for the first set, but did the last set on my own. Staple the fabric to the wood.
