Hi, my name is Sarah and I love bench. I also love lamp, but that's a movie reference and a topic for a whole other blog post. Benches are fabulous pieces in the home as they take up very little room and make a big impact on the functionality of a space. Here's how to make one that's toddler size!

Destri, one of the bloggers at The Mother Huddle, made this cute bench for her young daughter from an old shelf which she padded with batting, covered in fabric and, of course, attached legs. The project really is simple and you'll no doubt find many benefits to having a bench this size like helping your toddler put their shoes on without their feet dangling or having to climb onto a grownup piece of furniture.

Check out Destri's full tutorial on The Mother Huddle.
