Materials: Lack Bookcase, Capita Legs, Iris Chair Pad, Signe Rug

Description: We initially made this bench to go with our dining room table, but after a few IKEAhackers' readers were worried about the weight restrictions, and we had relatives complain about having to sit on a bench for Thanksgiving dinner, we found ourselves some lovely dining chairs and found a new use for the bench. Weight restriction still applies, though these days its mostly a toddler who is enjoying the view!

How to:

Turn bookcase on its side
Attach 6-8 Capita legs (they come in 3 heights)
Attach 5 Iris Chair pads (they fit almost perfectly)
Braid ends of fringe of 2 Signe Rugs
Attach rugs with a staple gun
Add decorative pillows


The baskets are old IKEA, that I actually found at a salvage store. I spray painted them white and made tags so our little one knows what goes where.
