When the stack of constructing the bar - It is logical when the table turns into LAK a children's play table - It's predictable. And when we will offer you make banquette with storage compartment of the lamp, you're probably very surprised.

The hero of our today's rework - hanging lamp in a series of products KULLA. To rework them, we need two. The first thing we cut the top and bottom of the banquettes. They are parts perfectly round, so stock up in advance the necessary tools.

The upper part of banquettes

The next step is upholstery the edges of the lampshade. This will make the future bench softer and more comfortable. Felt or synthetic winterizer can be used as upholstery material. You can fix the upholstery with glue and a furniture stapler. Then take a piece of foam and cut out a perfectly flat circle again, as far as possible. Attach the foam to our "lampshade" using a special durable wood glue.Details of the foam

To top upholstery banquettes take a thick cloth of any color you like. In order to get the upholstery as in the picture, we use a technique called "Capito" the essence of this technique is recessed in the upholstery buttons. Nuances of performance art "Capito" you can easily find on the Internet. However, you can use any other technique decor furniture.
