I visited my brother for the first time in a couple years. I sometimes forget how amazingly crafty he is. My mom was blown away by the leather, snap on cover he made for his truck. I didn't get a picture of that but I did notice his plain pine breakfast nook had gotten a killer makeover. He wouldn't post it online but I thought it needed shared.
I don't have a before pic but I am sure most of you have seen the pine, corner tables with benches before.
Here is an after close up. He sanded it and stained it mahogany. Then he cut boards that fit into the frame for the seats and back. He padded them and covered them in leather. Sweet!
The padded panels are such a perfect fit, they aren't attached at all and can be pulled out (with a bit of effort).
I wish my dining room had that kind of furniture. I just had to share. Sadly, I may need my brother to decorate for me. He has a better eye for design.
