Home Improvement Around My House: A Window Seat!

B and I had a blast doing the Parade of Homes this weekend.  The Parade is made up of open houses around the county, showcased by local builders and renovators.  It's a great time and an opportunity to get some awesome inspiration for home improvement.  One of the (absolutely gorgeous, expensive luxury) homes had a beautiful built-in window seat.  I've wanted a window seat since I was about 8 years old... and I'm 30 now!  While I was gushing, B said very matter-of-factly, "You know I could build you one."  Um yes.  So now, of course, I'm going nuts planning it all out.

This is about what we're thinking:

I have one wall in my bedroom that's mostly taken up by a window and that area kind of ends up as a clutter magnet.  This definitely seems like the likely candidate for a window seat makeover.  With a little furniture rearranging, this whole wall can be used for a window seat and built-in storage... and considering my entire house has ONE closet, that's good stuff.  SO excited.  I think the furniture rearranging will be a win too.

I don't have a good picture of that area and my camera batteries are dead.  Because I went to the store to buy batteries for it and bought another pack of the wrong kind that we already have, because that's how I roll.  Sigh... Pictures of that coming later.

Anyway, here are some more inspiration pictures that I've gathered.  I can't wait to get started.  There are a few other projects (like the kitchen) that are on the docket to happen first, but hopefully soon!

What do you think?  Been wanting a window seat?  Or maybe some other design feature that you've wanted since you were a kid?
