Hey Guys!
Wow time flies! I know its been a super long time since Ive posted. I have been quite busy and haven't really had as much time as I used to for my side projects. However, I had a special request to post how my Banquette ended up turning out - special requester you know who you are :)
So here it is (Im going to eventually switch out the pillows):

Buttt I have to tell you guys I ended up getting help from my friend who makes custom headboards. The first two pieces I did myself turned out okay but as a house warming gift, my girl Keisha offered to help me finish it up. However, when she finished the two other pieces (the backs of the bench)...hers looked sooo much better than mine so she decided to redo them for me so they would all look the same! I was sooo appreciative to her for doing that for me because I had tons of stuff to do before our housewarming cookout and she really did do a way better job than me! lol

So for all you non- DIYers out there, if you are in the Philly, MD, VA, NJ, NY area, contact her for your custom headboards or anything you need tufted! :)

By the way, I got the table legs from Pier One and ordered the glass custom from a local glass shop. I ended up underestimating the measurements for glass so its a bit shorter than I wanted it to be. But I plan to get a new piece made with rounded corners that will be exactly the length I want down the road.
