Kitchen Bench

We decided to make a built in bench in the kitchen to add more seating.  It was a simple project but has added much needed space (and is the favorite spot for the cat to take her naps).

We built a basic frame out of 2x4s that we then attached with screws to the knee/half wall for support.

I then added MDF panels for the sides and front.  In the same pattern at the kitchen island post.


I used a pine 1″ thick board from Home Depot for the top.


Primed the entire piece and then put on two coats of semi-gloss white trim paint.  Done


We made a cushion top with foam and fabric and added colorful pillows to finish it off.
