Did I tell you that I have a handy husband?! I didn’t know myself when I married him 😛 I envisioned a window bench where the baby can sit and read with storage of toys and random baby stuff underneath. Thanks to Pinterest, there are a lot of Ikea Kallax bench hacks, but to my surprise, Nick decided he was going to make a corner chest to connect it together. sure, why not?!
Putting the Kallax bench together was easy as per Ikea usual. I added batting, cushion, and fabric and got to work with a staple gun to put it together. Then some wood glue and screws from the underside to secure the bench to the shelf.
Nick made this extra special by putting a hinged lift door (with a safety slow so that there’s no slamming of little fingers). Add a cushion on top, and voila!
Here it is in the corner of the nursery…isn’t it just darling?
The nursery is coming together…!
