My house is small, cozy and perfect for me. When it came to designing my dining room space, I wanted to utilize the small space all while keeping that comfortable and cozy feeling. With this IKEA shelf turned bench, I could do that without compromising space and storage. The best part? It was super easy and affordable.
So this is what the space looked at before:
I knew I wanted to tear down that wall (to the far right) and put counter stools there so I needed the table to be closer to the window. Plus, I was going for cozy. 🙂

The chairs, table, pillows, fabric and bench are ALL from Ikea!
Thanks to the blog Mommy Vignettes, I was able to create it in less than two hours. Visit her blog here to learn how to make one for yourself.
