Casa de Lewis bio picture

    Hola peeps! Welcome to Casa de Lewis. We are twenty somethings who got married in 2010, bought a house in 2011, and had a sweet baby girl in 2012! We both started our careers as CPAs and now Reagan works in finance and I have my own photography business. I blog about my baby girl (obviously), products we love, crafts, photography, DIY projects, sweet treats, random life tidbits, and the balance of being a mom and business owner! Our house is always a work in progress but we love working on it and making it our own. Thanks for stopping by!

The Kitchen Banquette // Part Two

See Part One Here

After the base was finished, I started painting…

 As I mentioned in Part One, the bench would cover an air vent, therefore, we had to create a way for air to still circulate to the vent. I’d seen this radiator covering used in a project over on House of Smith’s and it dawned on me that it would be perfect for the front of our bench! It would look cool AND allow ventilation!

It is technically called a “decorative aluminum sheet”. There are tons of cool styles, we found ours at Home Depot here. They don’t offer these sheets in store here, so we had to order online. And our first package got lost in the mail…so, once we finally received them, we used a staple gun and a few nails to secure them to the inside of the three openings in the bench.

 Whew! Ventilation – check.

Next up: Adding beadboard and moving the electrical light box in the ceiling so that it is centered over the new table…

Hillary @ The Friendly Home - I used the same sheet aluminum for an air intake cover. I love it! Yours looks great. Here’s a link to mine:
