Finally got the carpenter in after numerous delays by the decorator to build our dining room window seat.
We are both very happy with the final product as you can see below. Got some new software for my phone so I can upload more than one picture and show you the whole process.
The seats on both sides lift up so we can use them for storage. We'll cover it in foam padding and then have multiple cushions for behind your back. Still got to get a blind for the window!
Update: These will be the seats on one side of the dining table which we also still need to get!
