Doing triple duty

While I can't take credit for the idea...(Steve), I did still execute, including a trip to get the wood cut and figuring out measurements.  This bench functions as a window seat/additional seating besides the couch, dining room seating, and extra storage.

The table's home is up against the wall, so that it can also function as a desk.  But when you have guest you can pull it up to the bench to seat four.  When I put the table together, I made sure to inset the legs knowing that it would be pulled up to a bench (unlike a chair that you can easily tuck under a table.) so it needed the extra lip.  I cut up a mattress pad to make the top extra cushy, and used a micro fiber drape as the upholstery to cut cost.
