– Storage Bench – Foam – Batting – Fabric – Staple gun and staples – Upholstery hammer – Tack lifter
Next, I cut my foam to fit the size of the top of my toy box. I recommend fairly dense and thick foam if it is going to be for a seat as it has to take your weight. Mine was 3 thick.
You don’t strictly have to attach your foam to your box lid but I find it helps at the stapling process to know you don’t have to worry about the foam itself sliding around.
I start with one staple in the center of each long side puling as taught as possible and folding under the raw edge before stapling it down.
