Fold-away dining corner

A family-centered dining nook tucks away into warm wood paneling

Here is an idea that will provide additional living space in your home without having to add an extra room. It is a complete dining center that blends into your kitchen wall when not in use.

A beautiful wood paneled section beneath the functional countertop swings downward to form the legs of this unique dining booth. Its brightly colored cushions create an atmosphere of gaiety that the entire family will love. A durable, spacious dining table swings out from the wood-paneled wall, ready for instant use.

Choose your favorite Weyerhaeuser 4-Square wood paneling . . . available in a variety of species, patterns and grains for the most discriminating tastes. Formal or informal the natural beauty of real wood will blend into all phases of family activity.
