My Very Own Banquette Seating

You may recall from this old post my love for banquette seating. It's funny how I am now blogging about this project almost exactly a year later from my first post :)
Here are some more inspiration photos:

I found this beautiful fabric at Calico Corners a few months back. It was perfect for a cushion to my bench because it was so think and durable. And the colors matched my kitchen cabinets perfectly.
Here is the empty eat-in kitchen space.
Just the right amount of space for a bench seat and a little round table.
Well my dad has been hard at work for the past month and built me this GREAT banquette seat!

My mom knows a lady that does slipcovering and did not disappoint with this cushion!
How great is my dad? He even added a piano hinge to the top of the bench to give me a little more storage room. Who couldn't use that?

I LOVE it! We do have a round pedastal table that we found on Craigslist and it's just waiting for a new coat of white paint. Stay tuned for the finished look!
