I have FINALLY made some progress on my window seat! You remember when I showed you this pic and said I would filling in that gaping hole and cutting the wood so it wouldn’t be sharp? Well I finished that part! Woo hoo!
This is a picture of the side of the white cabinet with the glass doors. I attached a piece of wood to the side from the inside of the cabinet and the side of the drawers, so I’d have something to nail the front piece of wood to……
Here’s the piece of wood I cut and attached to those pieces….
Here’s the front edge where it meets the drawers….there’s a small gap there, but I just filled it with a little caulk before I painted it. :0)
I cut the top piece of wood (I used MDF) that you will sit on and attached it to the top of the window seat. This picture just shows you one of the pieces laying on top. See how it sits on the ledger board I installed on the wall under the window sill. You can see how I installed the ledger board HERE if you missed it. I nailed the top into the ledger board and to the edges around the front of the drawer piece.
Here is the top of the window seat all installed now! Yay! I also added a little piece of half round trim on the front edge of the MDF to hide the raw edge. It has a couple of coats of primer on it in this picture.
Here is the hole all covered up now, painted out and hardware applied to the drawers! I’ve also cut all the foam rubber to fit the window seat top. Do you know what you cut foam rubber with? An electric knife….it cuts like butter! :0) It’s not just for carving turkeys anymore! lol
(sorry this pic is a little dark….it was getting dark outside, but I was anxious to show you how far I’ve gotten on the seat!
I’ll be working on the shelf that will span the top next. It will go from the top of one cabinet, to the top of the next one. Then there will be sewing….lot and LOTS of sewing! lol
Hope you all had a wonderful Memorial day weekend!
