You know we love uncovering new uses for everyday things, and we're all over the world of upcycling, repurposing, and the like. Another tufted banquette that the designer worked into this elegant dining room for the purpose of additional seating (used behind the table and chairs). After all, it could be useful if we every wanted to go back to having a table in that part of the room. This theme is fabulous for DIY ideas - lace is so versatile and be used in so many pretty ways! Attach the framing with wood glue and finish nails (Image 2). The purpose of the framing is to add strength to support the bench top and the weight of people sitting upon it. We have several projects here ranging from cute artistic candle holders to practical table and chairs. I used industrial strength Velcro circles (4 per bench) to keep the cushion from moving.

I'm also making the table plan but I haven't started that yet as I'm still waiting for all the RSVP's to come in. Assemble the short bench and attach it to the studs and cleat following steps 1 through 3. Make sure the second bench butts firmly against the first bench. Rose is a full-time freelance writer who frequently writes about education, special education, DIY projects, food, Milwaukee, and more. Apply laminate to the table top and aluminium flashing around the rim if desired. A few years ago, it was stripped to the metal, it's striking but a little too industrial for my retro kitchen.

Then we did the mock-up of the curtain panel in the back of the ticket booth and hung up the Directory board (aka seating chart) on the side. I can't articulate why - wish I could - I just know that it had the wrong vibe when I tried to make it a three sided seating area.

We needed seating that fit easily into the RV and was comfortable for dining as well as watching TV. We found that managers' office chairs work the best. If you are considering a banquette I would find out what the chair height you plan to use around the rest of the table is and use that as your measurement. Be sure to measure where you are going to place the booth thoroughly, taking into account any windows or power outlets. I have recently stated a blog about creating diy wall art so it was nice to see what someone else was doing in a similar vein.

To achieve these floating-in-space images, a painted background and set were created in a photographer's studio (or a circus tent or a booth on a boardwalk) and an individual or group would be arranged to look as though they were sitting upon the crescent moon. The side of the bench that will be against the wall will need an extra top frame piece to hold the piano hinge and bench top.
