By adding a piece of countertop and some stair railings along a countertop, this new eating space was created, allowing the dining booth to be removed and the space to be used for other furniture.

Need more ideas?  Perhaps one of these DIY furniture projects would be perfect for your space.

Alternatively, an expanding cabinet table like this one might be a good option for those who would rather buy than make their furniture.
