When we moved into our house recently we had a servery off the kitchen window that goes to the outdoor entertaining area. This was a great idea as it meant not carrying things up and down the stairs, there are 6 steps. However, we are both vertically challenged (although don’t tell my husband I said that) and it meant that the servery was above our eye level, so pretty dangerous and not much use.
The builder was working around the house so I asked him if he could he move it down to make a bench as it was a very solid piece with solid looking brackets. Here is the result, pretty cool, eh? It seats 3 people comfortably and I will make a nice cushion for it.
