Easy DIY: Tasseled Bench

Elaborate trim is an easy way to add a flourish to a plain upholstered bench.

  1. Choose trim in the same colors as the bench’s fabric. While details like tassels and embroidery might look over-the-top on another piece, the linen and brown palette here keeps the look toned-down.
  2. Attach the trim to the bottom edge of the bench seat by hand-sewing or hot-gluing.
