    Where did you move your rustic corner unit to?
    Also, what are the dimensions of your dining room? I have a really small dining room/breakfast nook that currently has a 42″ round glass table and 4 chairs. I’ve been trying to figure out how we can add more seating to our space for our growing family (currently we have to bring a folding chair from the garage every night, lol. Not to mention if we have any friends or family over!). I love your new bench idea, but am not sure how it’d look with a round table…or if I should change our table to be a rectangle shape.

      I am going to put the barn wood shelf in my boys room. As soon as we finish our bedroom in the basement, we are moving 2 of our boys in there. We will have a camping/outdoorsy theme and I thought the shelves would go great in there!

      Our dining space is 7 feet by 9 feet. It works for now but I honestly don’t know what we will do when our boys grow up and are all tall and lanky :)

    Those look great! I want to do this in our front room to display antique board games, etc. Can’t wait to see the full reveal!

    How large do you think these could be and still support some weight? How deep are the ones you just built?

    From the corner of the wall to the front is about 11 inches, across the front is about 22 inches, and the sides are about 15 inches. The hold a lot of weight especially since I caulked them. I probably wouldn’t go bigger than 14 inches deep.
