Square tufted Cheat!
I found this great bench for $8! So I took the cushion off and painted the whole thing black.
I wanted to use burlap for the cushion, I measured and then sewed pleats creating a square pattern (sorry I didn't take pictures of that process) I really wasn't up for diamond tufting nor did I have all of the materials to do that. So I came up with just screwing the tufts in! SO easy and it still looks nice, what an easy way to cheat!
You have to use washers as well otherwise the fabric will eventually pull around the screw and come undone. I put them right in the middle of each crossing of lines.
Then I hot glued nail heads down after chopping off the nail part!
