You will start with the top cover of material when creating an upholstered bench top.

Installation

Place your favorite material above the bench top. On every side of the top, Measure outcrop of 3 inches. The top will be trimmed to dimension when the upholstered bench with storage is completed. Fasten below the overhang one extended edge of the material with staple gun spacing staples around two inches at a distance. Fasten below the overhang the short edges of the material. Tense up the material by pull it down spacing staples two inches at a distance. Hold and tug the material at the corners down to not overlay. Fasten underneath the outcrop the latest long edge of material with staple gun. There should be no wrinkles on the top bench so pull it down firmly snug. Fasten the material with staple gun. Once more, avoid overlap when pull the material at the corners down firmly.

At all corners, Cut lengthways the staple line but before the end of the corner, do not cutting around one inch. There is now a skirt joined to the corner. Trim about 2 inches wide down to this skirt. Pleat the skirt around the corner and fasten it into position with staple. You will have a professionally finished appearance for the top corner of upholstered storage benches. The material that outcrops from underneath the bench should be trimmed. Cut off the residual material with a straightedge and a utility knife for a seamlessly straight line. You can fit the material definitely up alongside the staples with this technique.

Tips

If you have a padded bench, use the precise size as your bench top when measure and slice a piece of wadding. Add on some contact cement on the material overlays when you are stapling the material to add more gripping power. The material position is really secure once stapled in position. If the upholstered storage bench is going to be used repeatedly, this is a practical option. When the bench is being used or sat on, there is no risk of sharpened staples accidentally darting out from the bench using the gluing and stapling method. Consider using ornamental tacks to solidly fasten the material after attach the material using only a few staples If you use the bench mainly for a decorative bench.
