So many of us use IKEA's utilitarian Trofast system for storage. It's sturdy, kid-friendly and easy on the eyes. My kids use the top as a play surface and to display certain toys, but here's a great way to modify the Trofast if you're in need of seating.
Just cover the top with padding and a pretty fabric and you've got a comfortable bench seat with ample storage underneath. We spotted this over at IKEA Family Live. Anybody do something similar to this with their Trofast?
