Having an unused corner in a kitchen while space is so precious is almost a crime!
The idea that this woman has had should inspire you to arrange this unused space if you have one: it took a total of 15 hours of work. If you have less experience in construction, it will take you 4 times less time because the project is not complicated at all!
What she did was build a corner with wooden bench, which allows the whole family to have breakfast and lunch in the kitchen instead of the dining room. It's more convenient and friendlier too!
She started by making an "L" base with 2 X 4 for it to be solid.
As they are made-to-measure benches, they have been designed to be used as storage space!
The facades were covered with wooden planks and for a finer finish, she added a nice big molding to the ground.
Two large planks serve as lids for access to storage.
She also took the time in her weekend to paint her furniture and ... to build a custom table! Square, small, practical with its solid central foot, she can push back the table without problem to clean the space.
Finally, the rest of the time spent on the project was put on custom-made cushions to make the benches very comfortable.
Yes, it takes a whole weekend to work, but what a result!
