Here is a great do it yourself built in bench for a kids room or a master bedroom. A DIY window bench seat with 3 over sized storage areas underneath. This woodworking project cost around $150 dollars for the wood that was purchased at a local Home Depot. This is an intermediate project, meaning it will help if you have carpentry skills to build it. If you have a large window with some empty space underneath, this is a great addition to make the room extra special. See below for a step-by-step guide on how to build one yourself!
Materials needed to build this DIY Window Bench Seat:
1 – Box of nails
1 – Bottle of wood glue
1 – Box of wood screws
1 – Can of paint (that matches existing walls)
1 – Paintbrush or roller
1 – Wood for bench (measure the space of the bench area by L x W x H and purchase the wood)
Misc power tools, hand tools, and other items will be needed to cut and secure the wood together.
The area under the window in the bedroom was measured and the wood needed was purchased.
Cut this piece to size and nailed together using an electric nail gun.
This is the bottom frame section that will become the base of the bench.
Once your bench is completed, here is a great way to make your own bench seat cushion!
