Please don't get too excited. I just thought I would show you 'before and after' shots of the window seat I fought so hard to get. My husband agrees it has greatly improved the look of the room. We got rid of the horrible (what I call) smokers white paint and had new inbuilts installed. The bay window had nine drawers built into it around the 1980s so we removed the top three to make it a seat. Amazing what a good coat of paint and new drawer handles can do. Still playing around with fabrics and cushions but when I have time I hope to sew a cover with white piping or at least attempt.
