A secure bank

In your hall is still missing a matching seat? No matter if you have a lot of space or a little bit - we are sure to have the right solution for you!

You need this for this bank:

  • Stencil with desired motive (craft shop)
  • Stencil adhesive spray (eg from Marabu)
  • Acrylic paint in green
  • stippling

And that's how easy it is:

1. Spray stencil on the back with stencil adhesive spray and place in the desired position.

2. Apply stencil paint with a stucco brush. Allow the paint to dry slightly and carefully remove the stencil. Allow the paint to dry thoroughly.

Props: Bank rest: approx. 200 € Car self-made furniture

You need this:

  • Foam cushion with the dimensions 180 x 40 x 6 cm fabric (200 cm x 140cm)
  • Shelf (eg from Ikea)
  • tape measure
  • French chalk
  • fabric scissors
  • pins
  • Sewing machine with matching yarn
  • sewing needle

And that's how easy it is:

1. For a cushion measuring 180 x 40 cm and a height of 6 cm, cut the following panels plus 2 cm seam allowance:

  • once 180 x 40 cm
  • once 180 x 50 cm
  • once 180 x 6 cm
  • twice 40 x 6 cm

2. Sew the panels together right side-right: first sew the narrow strips to the short sides of a large fabric rectangle, then the long strip to the long side of the fabric rectangle. Then sew on the second big rectangle. One side, preferably the long on the back, leave open. Turn fabric over.

3. Push the pad in and close the seam with your hand. Tighten the fabric again so that it closes well around the padding.

4. Place upholstery as a seat support on the shelf.

And that's how easy it is :

Seat cushions:

1. Merge fabric right to right to 51.5 x 85 cm and sew together with 1.5 cm seam allowance on all three open sides. On the long side in the middle of a 30 cm large opening to turn. Overcast all edges.

2. Place the finished cover edgewise on the lower narrow seam edge, fold out the corners. Now stake out the corners (as with a milk carton) 4 cm wide and stitch. Do the same with the other short side.

3. Turn the cover through the opening. Insert foam piece.

4. Close the open edge by hand with needle and thread. (Alternatively, use buttons or a zipper).


1. Sew the edge 1 cm on both short sides and one long side.

2. Sew the second long side about 4 cm to get a tunnel.

3. Slide the curtain rod through the tunnel and clamp it between the sides of the seat.

That's what you need for this stool:

  • Peony fabric (TildaGrandmas rose blue turquoise, 1 m, eg via
  • stool
  • Hand tacker with tacker needles
  • tape measure
  • French chalk
  • fabric scissors
  • screwdriver

And that's how easy it is:

1. Cut the fabric roughly to the size of the stool (seat plus sides plus hem). Unscrew the feet of the stool.

2. Turn the fabric to the left and place the stool with padding in the middle of the fabric.

3. Beginning on the short sides, place the fabric under tension with the tacker on the wooden canted tackers.

4. At the corners, stretch from the center to the corner, smooth the fabric at the corner seam of the upholstery and tie it tight.

5. Cut off excess material with scissors.

6. Screw your feet back to the stool.

What you need for this corridor idea:

  • Dekoband in blue, about 150 cm
  • stapler
  • Tackernadeln

And that's how easy it is:

1. Staple enough deco tape to the wall.

2. Fix the pillow with the tape.

3. Tie ribbon to the loop.

You need this for the mural:

  • if necessary, computer, printer and paper
  • Acrylic paint, z. B. in gray, purple and yellow
  • pencil
  • eraser
  • long ruler
  • sharp brush

And this is how it's done:

1. Take our picture, a flower template from a book or the Internet as a rough template to hand.

2. Using the pencil and the ruler, draw lines on the desired wall, which together will form leaves and flowers.

3. With a little patience and steady hand, draw lines with brush and acrylic paint.

Tip: If you do not dare to go to your own wall, you can have a wood panel sawed in the hardware store, prime it and paint it.
