I’ve got an update on my window seat for you guys! :0) In the above picture you can see the big gap to the left of glass front cabinet. (it’s kind of hiding behind those tubs, but look close and you can see there’s 4” gap) I knew I would have to put a spacer in there, so I cut a 2 x 4 the height from the floor to the ceiling. I removed the toe molding on that wall too.
Since you’ll never see the back of the 2 x 4 I decided to use L-brackets to attach it the wall. I was very lucky and hit a stud, if I hadn’t hit a stud, I would’ve had to use some drywall anchors. I used 4 L-brackets up and down the piece of wood….it needed to be super sturdy! I used a level to make sure it was nice and straight too!
I put the cabinet back in it’s place and screwed it from the inside of the cabinet into the side of the 2 x 4. I’ll eventually show you why I put the 2 x 4 all the way to the ceiling…there’s a method to my madness! lol
Here’s a picture a little closer up….you see I’ll have to caulk the crack, but at least the big gap is gone now. :0)
I put a spacer on the other side too, but I didn’t figure you needed to see it twice! lol
I’ll show you how I’m going to fix the big hole here next! It’s not going to have that big sharp point sticking out either….that’ll be cut off at an angle.
It’s coming together….slowly, but surely!
I bought a BUNCH of fabrics for curtains, pillows etc. that I want to show you soon….I need opinions! :0)
Hope you guys have a blessed week!
