DIY Kitchen Banquette | Life Lessons with Mr. X

DIY Kitchen Banquette | Life Lessons with Mr. X

Welcome back to my channel!

In this video, I show you the steps I took to build our kitchen banquette. I love house projects and this one was definitely challenging but lots of fun.

I’m happy with the way it turned out, but tell me what you think below πŸ‘‡

I couldn’t complete this project without the help of my dad and a few videos on YouTube.

Here are the links to the videos I watched for inspiration, instructions, and tips:

1. Mr. Kate – DIY Velvet Tufted Bench

2. How to build an upholstered panel for a banquette

3. Fold the Corners of your fabric
***This was not the same video I use (I can’t seem to find it) but this video gives the same look as what we have.

If these don’t work for you, do searches for exactly what you’re looking for and I’m sure someone has uploaded something that will help you.

The table and chairs are from Structube. Here are the links for each:

Athena Table

Eiffel Chairs

Really enjoyed this tutorial! The hack for using the pegboard for the back of the banquette was really ingenious so thanks for that little tidbit. The one thing that you left out is the name/size of the cabinets you used from IKEA!! Did those cabinets come with the drawers or did you retrofit drawers to the cabinets?

I am really sure you can build it yourself mates. I made it 2 weeks ago thanks to woodprix website.
