Window seats can be not only fun in your nursery, kid’s room or playroom, but also practical.  A window seat can be the perfect spot for reading or relaxing and can also serve as a wonderful storage area for toys and books.

Window Seats made from IKEA Bookshelves:

IKEA hacking. It sounds like something illegal.   In reality, it's something creative people do all the time. Purchase an inexpensive piece of IKEA furniture, bring it home and doctor it up to make it look like a built in piece of furniture.

This can be as simple as a new coat of paint, changing out knobs or adding some pillows.  Either way, IKEA-hacking is a well known hobby - popular enough to have inspired a dedicated website (http://www.ikeahackers.net/) to the repurposing and modifications of IKEA products.  Who new??  

We found several window seats that were made using IKEA bookshelves (the Lack bookshelf or the Expedite Shelving Unit).  Click on image for original source and more ideas.









Have fun with cushion and pillow fabrics....Make a statement in your window seat area by mixing and matching different patterns and assorted colors.
