Our Vanessa Table

We love our table with the new similar bench and also bankette seating my husband made also. Chairs we bought at IKEA to match. The bench he made from the table plans but modified them to fit under the table. We have a small space to pass by the table from one end to the other. So the bench under the table helps visually make the space look bigger.

Estimated Cost
With wood, foam, paint and fabric we estimated the cost of about $300 for everything. The two chairs we bought at IKEA. The barn wood on the bankette seating we got from a friend from an old barn on his property. The bankette seating/storage benches my husband measured and made himself. No plans were used for that. If you need alot of foam for cushions buy on the internet, its alot cheaper than a fabric store.
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
Bankette seating storage was plywood.
Finish Used
White paint, foam, and fabric. We used home decor fabric from Walmart. Super cheap and it only cost me about $20 for the entire project for the fabric. To white wash the top we used the same white paint as the bottom but added water in the paint, then wiped it off. We also used felt coaster rings on the bottom of the small bench seating and the table. Easy to pull in and out. You can buy those at Lowes or Home Depot.
