Here's the dining booth/fold down bed/storage area. You can see that I tried to tie it together. The bench frame screws three of the four walls together. I was happy with the way the corner joints turned out (Cool Beds Frames)
I like the idea for kitchen counter. (AW) DIY wood plank kitchen table picture step by step ~ would also be really really awesome for kitchen counters! Stained black with high gloss protectant over them.
