This family dreamed of organizing a balcony all summer long. But only with the approach of the first autumn days came the determination to finally get down to business. No sooner said than done. Having decided on the future location of the boxes and having made the necessary measurements, the couple went to the building materials store on Friday evening. Work began on an early Saturday morning. First came the frame for the drawers and the future couch.

Then it was necessary to make the side panels 0.5 cm thick, which were fixed at the corners with strips 10 cm wide.

It only remained to install the upper coverings that were intended to double the role: the seats and hinged covers for the boxes. So-called “piano” hinges, which are very convenient for hinged doors, were used for fastening. Carpet glue was used to decorate and join parts, and all sharp corners were polished with a grinder. After 8 hours from the start of work, the balcony drawers with the function of the couch looked like this:

There was still to paint a new, hand-made balcony furniture. Of course, such a wonderful thing should be located in the appropriate setting! Therefore, the family decided to paint the entire balcony and supplement it with several new accessories.

The house has a spacious place to store cans of pickles and other things, while the balcony is very cozy. It is pleasant on it on cool days, wrapped in a woolen blanket, sit on a comfortable couch and drink a cup of hot chocolate!
