Custom Dining Booth From Bookcases
Materials: Expedit Bookcases
Description: We wanted to make a dining booth for our odd shaped corner dining room.
We bought 2 Expedit bookcases in the dark brown-black and planned on turning them face down and making “lids”. Turning them sideways made the height better, we could always add baskets or bins in the holes. But then we got a puppy…so we left them empty.
We butted them together in the corner, put a vinyl upholstered foam cushion on top (easy slippage for butts) and stapled upholstered foam to the wall for the back.
The person who bought the house insisted we leave it for them (must have thought it was some expensive custom-made piece!)
Oh yeah, those are Ikea chairs too.
