the bench is build from two 27″ varde wall cabinets, fastened side by side and propped up on six capita legs. a pronomen countertop goes on top.

“overall it’s a pretty functional unit, and it’s rock solid. and the dogs love it- we put in 24″ dog beds and now if we’re in the dining room, they’re in the bench. if they’re not begging, that is,” says jarrett.

    Awesome! Those beds are so cute, and don’t take up much space, so it’s good for small rooms. Terrific.

    Nice idea! I live in london and my flat is quite small, the dogs bed seems to take up all the room in kitchen.
