I know what you’re thinking. What the hell does a window seat have to do with storage?
Allow me to explain. This window seat/extra large windowsill was a huge selling point for Corey and I when we were first looking at this house. We loved the extra space it added for setting drinks and other things, and we knew Cullen would love curling up back there for naps (he totally does).
We also knew from the beginning that we’d like to see if we could add some storage underneath this window seat. We have no idea what actually lies underneath the wood on top of the seat, but we’ll definitely be finding out soon! We plan to cut out the majority of the middle portion, add in some hinges, and turn the area underneath it to a little cubby for storing extra throw blankets, games to play on our big, cushy ottoman, and anything else that we’d like to keep out of sight. We also plan to whip up a cushion to sit on top of the seat, making it a bit more comfortable for our oh-so spoiled dog to hang out on. We’re crossing our fingers that we can make the little cubby work just how we envision it!
Have you ever created a new storage spot in your home?
