So I started my dining room… Oooooo 800 years ago. So yeah, of course, I’m kidding, But it was like a lifetime ago and it is driving me crazy. OK when you’re doing some sort of renovations or updates, and you’re doing it yourself, there are bound to be delays. In my case, there were lots of delays. I mean life happens. No..Seriously, Life happens. So here I am in my dining room getting things done. FINALLY! First on my list to complete is my window seat with additional storage.
Here is a tutorial on how I built and how you can build your own window seat.
Complete plans available for download at the link listed below.
Start with constructed the base. Make sure not to obstruct any vents.
Build the cabinet base.
Attach the faceframe
Make the drawers.
Attach the drawer fronts
finish with paint/stain and applying the hardware. I got these pulls from Home depot and spray painted it gold.

    Does this not interfer with the air flow? How do you clean the vents?

    Beautiful work. Did you use tracks or brackets for easy open & close? If so, where did you place them?

    Hi Toolbox Divas - I would love to build things like this but I know nothing about using tools. Have you gals in the past or will you in the future, do some online videos for wanna be tool box divas? Thanks so much!
