Description: We initially made this bench to go with our dining room table, but after a few IKEAhackers’ readers were worried about the weight restrictions, and we had relatives complain about having to sit on a bench for Thanksgiving dinner, we found ourselves some lovely dining chairs and found a new use for the bench. Weight restriction still applies, though these days its mostly a toddler who is enjoying the view!
Turn bookcase on its side Attach 6-8 Capita legs (they come in 3 heights) Attach 5 Iris Chair pads (they fit almost perfectly) Braid ends of fringe of 2 Signe Rugs Attach rugs with a staple gun Add decorative pillows
The baskets are old IKEA, that I actually found at a salvage store. I spray painted them white and made tags so our little one knows what goes where.
