I am slowly working on getting my dining area in my kitchen complete. Round gate-leg table stripped and painted….check. Two new dining chairs…..check. But the next step is what to put along the wall of the dining area. You see I would like to be able to put the table leaf down along the wall most of the time, which doesn’t really allow for 2 additional chairs on the inside…..but what just might work is a banquette. Plus, with a banquette I might be able to get some additional storage, which I’m always up for. I’m thinking something like this IKEA hack using Expedit shelving.
I would choose another fabric, but I would like something like it with a cushion seat and padded seat back. I also heard that Expedit is being discontinued, so I’m wondering if could the materials for cheaper? Hmmm. Otherwise I would build it from scratch, but that would be a bit more time-consuming. What do you think about banquettes? Yah or Nay?
Have a great Friday!
