x bench makeover tips
Have you ever noticed the bench in your living room or around the dining room table? It's there and doesn't serve much purpose, right? Well, if you are like me, then you probably ask yourself "Why do I need this X bench?" or "Can I make over an X Bench?". The answer is yes! You can! In fact, this post will show you how to go about it.

X Bench Makeover with Faux Leather Fabric

If you're looking to make over an X bench, faux leather is a great option. Faux leather is much cheaper than the real deal and easier to clean and maintain, so it can be used in high-traffic areas like restaurants and offices.

Here are some tips on how to make over an X bench with faux leather:

Picking Out the Fabric

The first step in making over an X Bench is to choose a durable fabric that can withstand the wear and tear of daily use. Faux leather, microfiber and cotton are all good choices for this type of project, because they're easy to clean and look great for years to come.

When selecting your fabric, keep in mind that it should be neither too thick nor thin: if it's too thin, it may tear easily; if it's too thick, then there won't be enough give when you sit down on the bench--and who wants to sit on something hard? Also avoid fabrics that stain easily; this will make cleanup much more difficult than necessary!

Recovering a Bench with Upholstery Supplies

First, you'll need to remove the old fabric from your bench. This can be done by using a hammer and staple gun to pull out each individual staple. Alternatively, you can use scissors or a utility knife to cut off all of the staples at once--but if you do this (and we don't recommend it), make sure to wear protective gloves so that no sharp edges are exposed!

Once you've removed all of the old fabric from your X-shaped seat/back rest combo piece, measure both sides of each side panel with a measuring tape and mark where they should be cut with pencil marks on top of them. So they match up perfectly when put back together again later on in this process. Then use scissors or another cutting tool such as an electric knife grinder tool if necessary here too; just don't forget those protective gloves again!

Tips on How to Make Over an X Bench

  • Use a staple gun to secure the fabric.
  • Wrap the fabric around the frame in a circular motion, securing it with staples as you go.
  • Use scissors or an electric knife to cut off any excess material from your bench's back, leaving about 1/2 inch on all sides of where you want your new upholstery to end (so that when you fold over those edges, they'll be hidden). That way, when people sit on this piece of furniture and look behind them, they won't see anything but beautiful upholstery!

Step 1. Remove the Old Fabric from the Bench

The first step is to remove the old fabric from the bench. You can do this by using a pair of scissors, or if you're feeling adventurous, try cutting it with a knife.
Next, clean out any dirt or grime from your wooden frame and frame it in a circular motion as you are wrapping a gift. Then sand down any rough edges and wipe out dust from woodwork before applying stain or paint if needed (optional).

Step 2. Clean the Surface and Apply Stain or Paint If Needed

Now that you've removed any dirt or dust from the surface of your X Bench, it's time to clean it with soap and water. This will ensure that all of the old oil-based stains are gone. You can also use a degreasing product for a deeper clean, if necessary.

Next, apply stain or paint if needed (and if you're feeling ambitious). Apply stain in circular motions with a brush and let dry before applying another coat if necessary--you want even coverage! Use rags to remove excess stain/paint around edges where you don't want any color showing through.

Step 3. Sand and Wipe Out Dust from the Wooden Frame

You'll want to use a sanding block to remove any splinters and rough edges. Then, vacuum out any remaining dust with your shop vac or another powerful vacuum cleaner. If there are still some stubborn pieces of wood that refuse to come off, dampen a cloth with water and wipe them away until the bench is completely clean. Finally, dry off any remaining moisture with another clean cloth before moving on to step four!

Step 4. Glue New Fabric to the Foam and Frame

Now that you have your new fabric, it's time to glue it onto the foam. Start by gluing one side of the fabric to a leg and wrapping it around in a circular motion as though you are wrapping a gift. Bring up another piece of fabric and staple gun them together at multiple points along the seam. Repeat this process until all sides are glued down with staples securing them together.

Step 5. Cut Excess Fabric in Circular Motion

Now that you've cut out your fabric, it's time to put the finishing touches on your bench. This step is crucial if you want the final product to look professional and not homemade. To begin, use a staple gun to secure any excess fabric around the bottom of your X Bench. Then use a ruler or straight edge along each side of the backrest section and trim off any extra fabric with scissors in an upward circular motion. Thus, no visible seams are left behind when done correctly!
