He started by building benches with vertical and horizontal support. The same was done around the other walls.

Plywood was used to complete the benches. To make it more comfortable for family members and guests, foam was cut to size while waterproof fabric was used to cover it.

Bead board was used for the bench facing while a vent was added for the air-con. White paint was chosen to create a unified look with the rest of the space.

The finished project also showcases a customized table perfect for get-togethers with friends and family. This new dining space can now accommodate 12 people. To make it even more chic and relaxing, coordinated pillows were added to the setup.
