Learn how to make a frugal upcycled leather belt bench in this article to give a vintage look to your home decor!
This project is nothing to do with me, let’s just say right away, this Upcycled Leather Belt Bench was my husband’s project and vision! He always asks when you will going to include my DIY in your blog and I was like, maybe one day!
For a couple of years, he has been talking about collecting old leather belts to repurpose a vintage piano bench we’ve had forever. He actually found it by a dumpster of all places! Last week, he finally got his project done and I have to say, it’s pretty neat!
He picked up leather belts from a thrift store – even some fabulous snake skin and alligator skin belts! Then began weaving the belts until the surface of the bench was covered. He trimmed off the access belts and secured them into the bench using screws and washers. It’s so easy, it should only really take an afternoon to complete!
It surprisingly compliments our home decor nicely! The leather and wood are a nice contrast to the other decor items we have added to the room recently! As much as we love mid-century pieces and the simplicity of a Scandinavian-inspired home, we want a nice balance, it is a good thing!
I have to say, my husband has a great vision for things I sometimes don’t have. I think it’s great that we can both bring our own separate styles together and compliment one another! We share this home and I think it’s important that it says about who we are as a couple!
What do you think of this fun DIY? Do let us know because my husband is really excited about the upcoming responses.
