Paint Plywood Foam Batting Fabric Staples Upholstery Nails
DIY dog window seat
Firstly, I painted the dresser. This step is optional but I wanted it to flow with the rest of my living room decor.
Next, I cut a piece of plywood to fit the top of the dresser.
Then, using the plywood as a guide, I cut a piece of foam the same size as the plywood.
Then, I wrapped batting and fabric around to back side of the plywood and stapled down the edges.
To create tufts, I used upholstery nails hammered down through the fabric, batting and foam into the plywood. (Again, this is optional and the dogs won’t mind if it wasn’t tufted. But I like the look of tufted cushion.)
I can still use the drawers for regular storage.
