DIY: IKEA Shelf to Breakfast Bench

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.

I’m always looking for feedback. What do you like? What don’t you like? Share it with me in the comment section below.
