|So this is my non-handy man hubby building me a window seat/bench with old plywood and shutters I had bought from Goodwill and had in storage. As this picture depicts, my boys like to jump into these projects literally.|
As you can see, this was blah, uninviting and OH-SO-GREEN! I have nothing against green. Let's just not do three different shades of it with not one ounce of anything else! I loved the wainscoting and what appears to be an original cabinet. Extremely old at any rate. It's perfect for storing all my paint cans. The mice have found the cabinet to be the perfect winter hide out however, but they have plenty of room since paint cans are round.. :)
|We added two rows of shelves over the cabinet and I picked up the tall shoe cubby at Jackson Resale Factory for $10 I covered diaper boxes with wall paper for storage.|
|I added pegs for the kid's coats, but I'd still like to personalize them - just not sure what I want to do for that yet.|
|My mom sewed this fabric onto a foam pad since I can't sew worth beans, and also recovered some old throw pillows for a punch of color. We keep all our winter boots, hats, snow pants, etc. underneath the window seat.|
And last but not least, I just HAVE to show you the lights. Aren't they just gorgeous?! And I didn't have to do a thing - they were here when we bought the house! Score!!
Great for some Early Christmas shopping!
