If you live in LA, chances are that you're like us in that you subscribe to the "tiny living" principle. Let's face it, land ain't cheap here and most of us have to bear with our smaller-than-desirable living space until we make it big. Consequently, we're always looking for ways to save space, multipurpose, and increase storage.
So when we saw Scandinavian Design Center's Nautic Folding Seat we immediately imagined what it would look like in our tiny landing, just inside our front door. We envisioned folding it down to put our shoes on, then flipping it up and out of the way when we were done. Brilliant.
While we're in love with the design of this seat, it's hefty price tag is quite a deterrent. (Ahem…tiny living means tiny salary). But being the enthusiastic DIY-ers that we are, we were motivated to find a solution.
We found these Folding Shelf Brackets from Rockler that we thought we could attach to a square piece of wood. Since it's a small seat, splurging on an exotic wood might still keep us under budget. Although it may not turn out to be as minimal and pretty, we think it's a more practical option.
Anyone have other ideas?
