Make A Storage Bench From A Kitchen Cabinet

Leidi Bird

Window seats are great places to watch the world around you or read a good book, but that doesn't mean you have to have a built-in bench to enjoy one. Check out this simple DIY that's perfect for kids and looks great to boot!

Bekah of Leidi Bird is the brains and hands behind this window bench project which you can make too even if you're not a whiz with tools. This storage bench actually started life as a kitchen cabinet and Bekah added large feet, a coat of paint and a simple upholstered top to round out the look. It's great standing alone or could work in multiples to cover the entire length of a window. If you're worried about it tipping, you can always anchor it to the wall.
