Redoing our dinette upholstery

One thing we have been itching to get rid of in our Airstream is the upholstery in the dinette. This is my first attempt at upholstery and I am pretty happy with the results.

Very nice job. Did you change the foam and if so, what did you use?

Yes, new foam. I used the high density foam from Joann's. It is much nicer, we don't feel the plywood underneath when we sit down now.

Thanks for the comments everyone! We are very pleased with the results. I started a new thread looking for ideas how to remove the bench top padding and the fabric on the back of one bench.

Here's the end result with all the cushions done.

Did you only use foam or did you use some of the white spongy padding stuff too?
