    Benches for bedroom can be made of fabric, boards and foam. The fabric used for the tufted cushion should match with the rest room decor to make everything well blended. If you already had a bench in your home, you can simply make the cushion to complete it to make a bench for a bedroom. However, if you do not have a bench, then you can make the bench your own. Making a bench is a bit complicated because you need to do some carpentry skills in this project.

    First you should sand all the boards that you want to use to make a bench. You can use a medium-grade sandpaper to sand hardwood boards and then clean any debris from the sanding. After sanding, you can stain the boards in the color that you want to match the rest decor in your bedroom. Remember that you need to use different boards in different thickness for the sides and the seats.

    After staining your bench, you need to allow it to dry before continuing to the next step. The boards that you will use for the bench seat should be marked every 3 inches to make the tufted. However, you can use different spaces for the tufted to suit your need and taste. The tufted marks can be drilled to create 1/8-inch holes. The hole over side that you stain should be covered with a duck tape to help you hold the knots as you later tuft the seat.
