PROJECT SUNDAY

I love window seats! They make any breakfast nook, bedroom,  and of course window look fabulous. You can dress them up anyway you would like and if you get bored just switch-up the pillows and cushion fabric
 and KA- BAM a whole new look!








So you can only imagine how excited I was to acquire a window-seat when we moved into our house.......


Now you can see that it is a great window seat but a little blah...... I had purchased some fabric over the summer to make decorative pillows for the window but never got around to making them.

 So this weekend I was inspired to spice up our seat......


Not too shabby...eh?



I even attempted my first zipper

I still need to cover the seat cushion, I am thinking a chocolate brown colour trimmed with a natural linen pipping.... I just need to find the right fabric (one that is durable and able to handle a 2 year old's sticky hands)

But for now I love that I can grab a blanket, book and a yummy beverage and snuggle into our window seat and be content on a rainy Sunday afternoon...... Of course it only happens on the odd chance that the hubby has taken our adorable monster out.

For those of you DIY-ers looking to create your own window seat here is a link to Aubrey+Lindsay's Little House Blog where they built their own Window seat CLICK HERE


Would love all and any feed back on fabric choices...

XOXO
