Is it just me or can you never have enough storage? It seems like we are always in the same mode at my house of trying to find a home for all of our stuff. It took a full eight years for Laura to finally get the window seat that should have been included when we built the house. But you need not wait to have your own because this project goes together in an afternoon with minimal fuss.
Having a supply of old paneled wood doors at our disposal has provided us with design ideas and material for various projects like this one. The door that we selected for our window seat, by a stroke of luck, happens to be ideal for the cottage style that we so adore. It can sometimes be quite difficult to find what you’re looking for, while other times the perfect piece seems to speak to you from the junk pile. There are no guarantees in junking, so you have to resign yourself to go with the flow. I tend to think the challenge of finding materials is the best part, if you can get past the whole frustration thing.
