MET MONDAY - Window Seat

Little beknown to us, this window seat project would cause an entire kitchen re-do! We started the window seat last fall and ended the kitchen just a few days ago. I can't even begin to tell you how much I love it!

The bay window was crying out for something extra.

Framing, framing...

See, I actually do some of the work.

We're on a roll now!


Alright! We're on to the decorative touches.

The extra storage space has really come in handy! Those of you who know me won't be surprised to hear that.

Finished! Except for the cushion. I'm hoping to have one custom-made one day when I hit the lottery.

Thank you to Susan and please visit the other posters at Between Naps on the Porch !

  11. That's how ours started too :) Everything starts as " a quick fix " and then ends up in full out house remodel ;)
    I love your window seat. We still haven't made cushions for our banqette we made a few months ago. We too DIOurselves :P

  12. Wow! It looks so professional and fits in perfectly with the architecture of the space.

  13. I have always wanted one of those! You did a great job.

  14. I love it, so pretty! I would love to do this in our kitchen, but of course the heating vent is right smack in the way.

    Hoping you win the lottery soon so you can get your cushion on there. : )
