Here are the pics of the banquette! I built the frame and attached it from inside with L brackets instead of screwing right to that wall. This way if I need to move it or want a change, all I need to do is unscrew the brackets and remove the bench! (And if you know me at all you know that nothing ever stays the same in my house for too long! ) Although I do think this will be a permanent fixture! I also added a piano hinge and lids for storage.
It is so nice to have. I find the kids wanting to be in the kitchen with me more. It is so comfortable and inviting.
