I realized today how often my children sit on the windowsill in our family room. It is only about 2 inches in width, but they somehow can watch an entire cartoon on there.
So, I grabbed some of the scrap wood and made a window bench for them. All the lumber was free, screws were on hand, & the paint was from a $1.50 can of "oops" paint found at Home Depot.
If I gave you a beautiful description of how I made this bench, it would be a lie. And for me, boring. I am not one that will open up an instruction manual and follow it. I'd rather put a project together on my own which usually leads to major frustration.
I literally found two long pieces that match in length (6ft 8in). I then found some post type pieces, carried them into the house, laid them next to the window and "eyed" the desired height. Then, I took the measuring tape to find that desired height. I cut up some wood, raided my husband's screws, & put together this bench. It was too easy, but the result is fantastic.
There it is. The kids' new window bench.
We're all happy with it.
