Woohoo, we made it to another Fri-yay! This week wasn't bad at all, but I'm just always ready for the weekend. I'm especially ready for this weekend. Luke and I are escaping for a LONG weekend to Pittsburgh. The Chiefs are playing there so we are road tripping. It's a pretty good drive from us, but I don't want you to worry because I have a list of places to stop at. I'm hoping to have quite a bit of fun at some flea markets. A few readers suggested some mid-century stores between Indianapolis and Pittsburgh and I can't wait to stop. We are driving our SUV (just in case). =)
Today though, I want to share a fun Simple DIY Fur Bench. I don't know about you but when the weather starts to feel a bit crisp, I'm ready for chunky blankets, a little fur and sweats. Definitely sweats.
Doesn't it just bring all the good winter feelings to you?
I've been seeing this type of bench at some of my favorite stores (and I'll link to those at the bottom) but knew that I could make it for super cheap!
You could totally make it with fabric, but I made it with a rug. Flokati rugs are super easy to find. My go-to places to get them cheap are Ross and HomeGoods, but they can be found easily online as well.
To get the full tutorial, head over to eHow! Before you go though, check out a few other benches that I made. You will probably love these DIYs as well.

I'm going to stretch the "bench" term and also show you our DIY Banquette. We love having it in our kitchen.

i love this, ashley! looks awesome and the perfect fall/winter bench!
Thanks! I'm so pleased with it!
I love how you use rug instead of fabric, Ashley. It provides more comfortable. Already bookmarked it and planned to do it later. Have a great week!
Thanks Jennifer. The rug is just a fun little find that turned into something perfect.
I am feeling the winter as im reading your post.Such a beautiful fur bench. I will try to make it for my house soon. Thanks for inspiration!
You totally should! It's simple!
Simple DIY Fur Bench. this is perfect to use in winter and great to sitting on it!
For sure, thank you.
Really fun, great inspiration! One can also buy fur yardage in a range or colors, and a bright color could be fun too.
And come to think of it, this could be great for a stool cover as well, hmmmmm. thanks so much for sharing on craft schooling Sunday!
Yes, you are so right!
Omg, so glamourous!!! I'm always searching for the fur rugs, but they are too hard to find! I will take a look at place you recommended. Thank you !!
How pretty! I think anything fur in my home these days would be a magnet for my pint-sized roommates and all their things! Someday. I'll add this to my list! Visiting from Create Link Inspire party.
Yay, thanks Victoria!

This bench is so pretty, especially around the holidays it can provide a nice, cozy seat! I hope you will share with us at The Crafty Corner link party. Thanks for the inspiration!
Yes, I totally agree. Thanks!
Love it! just pinned thanks for sharing with us at Turn It Up Tuesday 🙂
Wahoo! Thanks so much Mari!
Like your suggestion. This furniture is quite suitable for dry and severely cold season. I’ve got a friend in Vietnam and their family is really into fur decoration, but they never dare to use this material. The tropical humidity could destroy everything.
I bet! Thanks for stopping by.
I am so loving that rug! Can i have one?
This is stunning! I run a link party and would love for you to join us tonight at 10pm eastern time! Hope to see you there 🙂
Love this pretty bench, I just want to have one in my home, thanks for sharing with us, Ashley.
Thanks so much Maria! It was so easy!
Love the fur bench tutorial. I also happen to really like the art hanging above it. Is it a DIY piece and if yes, do you have instructions for it on your blog?
It's from Minted. Direct link under the shop my home page above! Thanks Anya!
Hi! Where did you buy the legs?
I can't remember which was cheaper but I either got them from eBay or Etsy.
