I just finished this yesterday and LOVE it! I was a little worried at first because my original plan was to use fake leather.... but... I found this upholstery fabric in the clearance rack and couldn't pass it up. Instead of typing out how I did this, I decided to just google instructions and found this simple one to follow.
(I used 4in foam instead of 2in)
To ADD the buttons:
-Drill 1/4in. holes in the back of the wood where you plan on adding the buttons. (Drilling the wood only, DONT go through foam or fabric)
-Using a 4in. upholstering needle and button thread, thread, from the back, all the way through, leaving a 4in. length of thread hanging in the back,
-Thread the button on
-Thread, from the front, back through.
-Pull the threads to make the button sink into the fabric and foam, staple gun the thread to the wood when desired tightness is achieved
-Follow previous instructions until all buttons are threaded.
I hope that makes sense! :) Let me know if you have any questions.
