Window Seat/daybed


We had a odd little space at the top of our stairs. It was billed as a sitting room, but was not appealing as such. I used it for a while as an office, but it was awkward and overcrowded. Needing a bit more space for guests and wanting a more intentional feel to the space, we tackled the room. Lots of inspiration from hometalk and pinterest behind this project. It is not a low bench--pretty high in fact. The drawer is an old door and slide out a lipped platform for storage of tubbed materials.

    i had a friend years ago that had one . It not only looked good it got used a lot. Was a nice place to read a book.
