Hey and Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend regardless of where you live in the World.
I shared our plans for the dining room makeover over on my Instagram this week, but I thought I would share them here too.
We live in a 1,300 SQ FT bungalow. There is six of us crammed in this home and the rooms are very choppy and small.
Our dining room JUST fits a 5.5×3′ table and no one can ever get around to the bench on the other side of the table because it’s so tight.
I had this great idea to build built in seating on all three walls to maximize our seating.
Below is a photo of my moodboard for this space
We already have the existing rug and light and we’re currently building the built-in seating. We’re also hoping to DIY a table top for our existing table and keep it a light colored wood.
Here’s a photo from Lux Interiors + Design Magazine of what we’re trying to achieve and what the built-in seating will look like
At this point, I’m unsure where I will source custom bench cushions/covers, but I’m sure we can operate without them until I do 😉
We spent all day building the bench and we will continue on tomorrow. I cannot wait to take you along on the process of building it and styling the space!
