like your give me new hope that it's possible to make the space comfortable and liveable.
From the looks of it, you didn't even modify the structure, but modified a couple chairs to fit over it. Is that right? Would love to know more about what you did, how you did it, lessons learned, etc.....
best to refer to pics as you read this!
first took of old table top and kept base then turned base 90o and moved it as far to port side as was comfy for legs etc sitting at table.
then fabricated new table top which folds open on a piano hinge using high load furniture draw runners and two batterns to suport table when open. (will poast pick of detale soon)
the table is only used open when we have more than 3 at the table for a meal or when doing projects sewing etc.
the two large chairs and the office style chair were all from ikia all in black leather.
yes you are right they are modifided to fit existing structure, cut of back legs and screwed frame to existing structure.
then arm rests and the remander of cusions were made from closed cel foam and coverd with 1" soft foam for comfort and soft shape.
them all coverd with matching leather.
the stool is a 5 draw tool box eg snapon stile with thin cherry pannles stuck on and a cusion top.
will add some detale pics after posting
hope it helps ask any questions an i will try and explane.
