Topping off the window Seat

As long as we have been talking about the window seat, my dad has been tossing around this idea of using a wooden door as the top.  Like many other ideas, I didn’t understand it, but decided to let him run with it.  As always, it was the right decision.  Last weekend, my mom and brother found a solid wood door at the Covington Reuse Center for a grand price of….. $10.  After trimming the door to fit into the space, we set it in, and it looked immediately perfect- as though it had been there all along.

About $60.  No question that this was money well spent.
