Hey guys!! Remember our buddy Adam who built that amazing boat-themed kids’ room? Well, he & Leif worked together to create one of our latest DIY projects, and I am SO excited to share it with you today! Y’all ready for this??
We live in a tiny house. To save space, we usually just eat at our kitchen island. It’s perfect for two people day-to-day, but we really don’t have an area where we can entertain guests. Soooo, we took a trip to Ikea in search of design ideas, and we found our inspiration! They had a dining table that folded away after being used, and it also had storage — brilliant! We would have purchased it on the spot, but we wanted something a little bit bigger & sturdier, so we decided to build one ourselves. Check it out!
I love it SO much!
When we’re not using it, it folds down to the size of a small dresser, and the built-in storage drawers are always accessible.
It has two drawers on each side, and the support legs just slide into channels under the tabletop. (The Ikea table had legs that swung out, but we needed stronger support since our table is much heavier!)
Now we have a beautiful table that seats six, folds away in a jiffy, and adds extra storage space to our home! Dinner party, anyone?
Oh, and in case you’re not in the mood to DIY this, you can find the Ikea version here.
I am so, SO proud of my hubby (and Adam!) for this amazing project — great job, guys!! I think our next step will involve figuring out a seating solution & decorating our new table!
