Stages of work:

  • Cut the sheet of MDF to the right you banquettes (its top) dimensions.Next, place a pencil mark where the screws will be placed (typically 8-10 marks).After that, make a layout for the drilled holes with a drill.Fix the bar on top of the cement-contact.
  • top of the sheet of MDF anchoring layer of foam.Material can be bought at any hardware or home improvement store.Above laid a layer of cotton (as described in the first method of assembly benches).Secure it to the base using the furniture stapler.Carefully cut off the excess.
