Here it is, guys. The whole shebang!
I put the large mirror above the banquette because hanging mirrors and pictures higher up on walls creates the illusion of higher ceilings, because it draws your eye up…or something. Also because it reflects sunlight and chandelier light into my adjacent kitchen. Plus I just like it there. To finish up the space, I displayed my metallic prints of the LA Farmers Market in 1946 in frames from Ikea and grouped them in a set of 4. I love these prints because theyre vintage and they’re food themed without being too obvious. The mid-century fruit bowl was a lucky find at Goodwill for $2.
Let’s see now…
I’ve showed you the mirror.
I’ve showed you the chairs.
I showed you the table.
Yesterday, I showed you how to make the banquette. [Edit: The fabric was changed. Updated pics here.]
And I even showed you how to make the pillows!
That it, guys. There’s the dining room. I’ve showed you everything.
Let’s check out the before and after-
Now it’s time to change it up for Halloweeeeeeeen!

Thanks for sharing this fun and relatively inexpensive diy banquette! It looks great in your space. I have included it in a round-up on my blog today: http://hotcommodityhome.blog.com/2013/04/15/diy-banquette-seating/
Hi! Did you paint the walls also or do they just look like different colors (especially in the last photo) because of the time of day or flash/no flash?
I actually moved to a new apartment with the same floorplan, so yes the paint is different. One was a grey hue and the new one is a neutral cream color.
This is really awesome. We are about to move house and have been looking for ways to save on space and this is an idea id have never thought of! I love the bench 🙂
