When Imgur user MidnightXII took a long, hard look at his dining room, he realized the old-fashioned round table was just not cutting it. Watch his unbeatable moxie and amazing end result when he decides to take his dining room into his own hands…
Though the French doors are fabulous, that particular table and chairs make the dining room look boring and basic.
So he removed the table, and the line bisecting the room comes out from hiding.
He measures the area and cuts chairs to measure exactly 9 feet by 6.5 feet.
He attached a support at the wall studs.
Then, seat supports were drilled into place every 20 inches.
Next, vertical supports and horizontal floor supports add to the structure.
The supports are anchored to the floor and drywall.
The plywood for the booth seats goes on and is measured to line up perfectly.
Three 2 inch foam cushions add extra comfort to the seats.
Outdoor fabric added extra durability, especially against stains. Once the foam was covered, it’s just a few quick staples to upholstered seats.
Now, all the seats have been upholstered.
They’re starting to look like real seats.
A few adjustments needed to be made to make the bead board lay flush against the window trim.
Because the bench covered up the wall vent, a hole was cut to let the air pass through.
And a vent went on to let the air pass through naturally.
This already looks so much more stylish.
A border keeps the edges of the cushion in place.
At this point, you could stick with the natural wood, but he opted to go for pure white.
A pair of sturdy table legs and a rustic wood tabletop bring this family style dining area together.
It’s a huge improvement and brings such class and glamour to the house.
