Expedit Bench with backrest

Materials: 4×1 Expedit, foam material, wooden panel, pleather

Description: We decided to build a bench from Expedit. Our dining table has leather chairs in beige. We didn’t find any compatible benches, so we have to do it on our own. We take an Expedit with white doors. We need some wooden panel 185×39 cm an 185×100 cm. We put some foam material on it and overdraw it with some pleather in the same colour as our chairs. Just put screws in it and finished. The small one for the seats and one the other for the back rest. That’s all.
