Bench Seat from a Table Part Two

Hey everyone!  Happy Friday.  I’m enjoying a lazy morning off of work {thank goodness for unused snow days!} and it is wonderful.  I do a few plans to be productive-including trying to make a new type of maxi dress and another simple skirt-but other than that, you can find me relaxing today.

Anyway, on to today’s post.  I realized a couple weeks ago that I never shared the second bench seat that we built in the kitchen a few months ago.  You can read about the first one here and the story behind the table we used to create these benches.  We started with this half of the table.

Mike had to remove the old table legs so we had a couple of holes to patch.

We actually reused the old legs for this side of the table and made some chunky legs.  Mike cut them down to size, then I sanded and stained them to match the top.

Mike used the kreg jig to attach these legs to the underside of the table top.

Then we had to create the bottoms of the legs.  Mike cut two smaller rectangles and angled the edges for a little extra style.

Then we stained those to match and nailed them into the legs.  You can see in the picture below how patched the kreg jig holes also-you can just buy those hole patches at any home improvement store.

And that’s it.  Super simple.  I actually think this one is my favorite of the two.  It looks great next to my painted striped rug too.  I still plan on making a cushion that matches the other side, but I clearly don’t move too quickly. PS-ignore the dusty bench top…these pics were taken right after we brought it in when we finished and I apparently didn’t take the time to clean it off so it looks dirty and makes the stain look a little uneven but I promise it’s not:)
