Built-in banquet. We needed more room in our small dining room so bench seating made the most sense. My wife Janell learned how to tuft the upholstery and chose some really nice micro suede material for easy clean up. We used extra thick foam (high density foam at 3 inches) for a comfy seat and back rest. I made the bench look built-in by using the same baseboard and wainscoting motif as the rest of the house #diy #banquette #diningroom
