We’ve been busy in our first week with “Nesting”, making the home our own.

Being quite the DIY-Guy that I am, one of the first tasks was to make the storage bench in the reading nook more comfortable by adding a foam pad. Our local chain “Fred Meyer” just happened to have some basic camping and RV supplies that included a 6′ sheet of foam to be used as a simple mattress for campers.

I was able to get it loaded up pretty easily on my bicycle trailer.

The pad was shorter than the bench but wider than needed so I figured the side that was trimmed off could be used to fill the end pieces.

Luck would have it that the trimmed piece was 8-inches wide and I needed 16-inches filled.

By putting each 8″ piece on an end, it filled out the whole bench quite nicely.

We’ve already had friends over and have appreciated the padding.

Easy-Peasy! Now we can use the bench for lounging or as a guest bed.
