a window seat

i am currently sitting in the lowest level of our house. i'd call it a basement, but it isn't technically one because we don't have basements in virginia beach due to being at sea level. it is HOT outside. 91 degrees. seriously global warming. it is may!! thankful our AC. 

i just get so sleepy and tired in the afternoons and haven't really felt like blogging. so sorry. but we have been busy. there seems to be a never ending to do list with this house. we just decided we might redo the downstairs bathroom soon, but philip is still in the midst of building a window seat and i am supposed to be in the midst of decorating the dining room. i'll try to blog more design ideas for that room soon because i am baffled. 

here is philip's progress with the window seat so far. this big window faces the front of our house and is in the dining room and is also the first room you walk into the house. which is a really strange set up for a house if you ask me. so our goal is for the room to be functional, not too formal still since we do not have an eat in kitchen & since it also the entry way. 

first he build a frame for the seat. 

then boxed it in and added some decorative elements to the front. he also connect the air vent so that it will not just blow in the seat & moved the outlets up the walls (on the right & left of the bench). also reattached the trim to the front. 


 finished boxing it, made it pretty by sanding and priming and painting, and the middle will have a lid with a hinge for some much needed storage...which we always seem to need more of. 


he's almost done so i'll try to post a final picture soon along with the entire room & what i am hoping to do with it. 

so what have i been doing while he is doing this? not much, avoiding paint fumes... i am still tired as i mentioned before so my main job is to document it, but i have been working on some jewelry for Lake Champion, Rockbridge & Castaway! 


have a great tuesday!
