Last weekend we had an ice and snow storm that kept me at home for a few days. I decided to take advantage of the snow days by working on a few projects: hanging shelving in the bathroom, building a bookshelf, hanging a knife rack in the kitchen, and most significantly building a bench seat/day bed.
I was able to do all of this with two sheets of cabinet grade plywood, cut down to size by the good folks at Home Depot. I assembled everything with nothing more than a drill, screwdriver and a few cinderblocks to support the bench seat.
The seat is 7-feet long by 2.5-feet wide. The cushion is foam, currently covered by a wool blanket. I hope to get around to covering it with upholstery eventually, but it works wonderfully as is. The bench seat stacks functions, in that it is a couch, day bed, and booth-style seating for the dining table, while also providing storage beneath for things I don’t need access to often.
Thank you hellotinyhome for sharing your journey.
