Adalyn loves spending time in her window nook, relaxing and reading books. I can’t blame her, the sun shines in through the trees and it’s the perfect fit for her. I would have loved to have one as a child! I wanted to make it just a little cozier. I started by searching for one online. No thanks. I’m not going to spend 100’s of dollars on this piece. Instead, I spent 25 minutes and $25 making one.
First, I measured the inside of the window, allowing a .25 allowance for the perfect fit. I had Chris cut the board to size. It didn’t even take him 5 minutes.
Then, I placed my board on the foam and traced with a permanent marker.
I placed the foam on cardboard and using a sharp knife slowly cut along the line, ensuring a smooth, clean edge.
I happened to have some spray adhesive, so to make the next step even easier, I adhered the foam to the board. You can easily skip this step.
Next, I laid my fabric down on the floor and positioned the “seat” on it. Sure, you should iron it. It’s just not my thing. I avoid it at all costs!
