Window Seat

My younger daughter asked for a window seat for my new grandson’s nursery. The corner of the room with the window sits at 45 degrees to the adjacent walls so had to make a few adjustments (like no square corners). Doors ride on barn door rails. Only store-bought items are the ship’s wheels.

-- I cut that board three times and it's still too short.

I like it. Really good work, Paul. The sliding doors are a very creative idea. Looks beautifully finished as well.

Here’s what I like. I think pottz will agree. It’s great when new members post some projects. I think that’s the best way to be part of this community. If you’ve hung around for a year or two, professing your expertise with nothing to show for it, you need to pony up and show us your work.

Glad to have you on board, Paul.

That looks great! I have a similarly shaped corner and now I’m quite inspired.

Nice work Paul,
I like the look of it all. Very creative with the ship wheels.
Not everything needs to be handmade to create a look.
Barn doors really add to it.
Welcome aboard!

PS, please move rug to the right just a smidge…. :)

Paul,

The window seat looks great! It really ties together with the rug. Your daughter should be delighted and when your grandson gets older, he’ll be impressed, too.

My daughter came up with the nautical theme for the room. This was easier than building a boat. As to the rug placement, if this was InteriorDecoratorJocks.com I would have paid more attention. Sorry. I have a small project that I’m working on for the room and will post a blog in a day or so.

Thanks for all the support.
