Kitchen cart and butcher block transform into bench
Materials: Bekvam Kitchen cart, Numerar Butcherblock
Description: We scored the butcher block in the As Is section and my husband had the instant idea to finally make a window bench for our daughters room.
We also ran into the Kitchen Cart which was heavily reduced.
Here’s how it worked:
The kitchen cart legs where shortened to the desired height, put together (without the top and the shelves) and just cut in half to create 2 leg sections.
Each half was used on either side of the custom cut wood top (butcher block) and attached with the hardware included with the kitchen cart.
It fits like a glove and we had lots of fun reading, playing and relaxing on it already.
We’ve also created custom drapes using existing Ikea curtains and added their fun fabric as well as throw cushion and floor pillow.
