Using plywood, 2x4s, and unfinished kitchen cabinets, Amber and her husband fashioned a seating area that makes excellent use of a nook under their dining room window. Add in some cushions and stylish textiles, and you have one great-looking banquette.

Amber says buying the unfinished upper kitchen cabinets from Lowe's was more affordable than building their own. The upholstery, then, ended up being the bigger expense because it required 14 yards of fabric. To give the cushions more durability, Amber covered them in pre-washed denim.
