Window Seat

My last window seat post was written in February, 2011, when we were planning to add a window seat to our home. Two+ years later, how is that window seat coming along?

To quote Christmas Vacation, I can picture it in my mind and it's breathtaking.

Sexy Nerd has been too busy to build my window seat. Between organizing his office, painting "meatballs" on his Mini Cooper, baking raw cookies, and napping while simultaneously watching Nascar, he just hasn't had the time.

One day I'll get my window seat. How difficult do you think it would be for me to just build it myself?

Keeping in mind that I'm not handy at all.

Really, you may as well consider me the anti-handy.

Here are some window seat ideas I've seen online. The 3rd photo looks doable. I could probably just put some cheap bookcases side by side and top them with a patio cushion from Home Depot. Of course, what I really want is the window seat from either the 1st or 2nd photo (along with the chandelier above it, the arch, the brick, and the wood, all somehow seamlessly merged into 1 perfect spot).

A pretty view outside the window would be nice too.




 

One day.
