Window seat/storage

This was my craft room. But it is also our entry room and what is called here, a mud room from the backyard. I could not keep the craft room looking neat, and everyone comes to the back door. So here is the framing of the window seat. We are using bead board on the front and sides. The top will open. I will be searching for fabric to cover the pillow top. I have a couple of things in mind. I will be painting it white to match all the trim in our house. It isn't a pure white, it is a little creamy. You can see that our tree's are starting to turn. I will take more pictures as it comes together.





In this picture inside the frame on the left side, you will see a place where there is gray putty.
When we were working on the floors, we found a can lid that was nailed over the hole. It had 5 cents on the lid. No pipes or anything, so after some thought we think it was where the old fashioned washer was drained. This room is right off the kitchen, divided by a island with my stove. We like that it is really open and yet still with some modern stuff. We think the kitchen had some TLC in the 50's. But you can tell that at one time there was a wood stove. The brick chimney is still here. We have had so many mysteries about our old cottage farm house. Most of them have been salved in remodeling.

Can Arney come visit me?!! That looks like a wonderful project and what a great place to sit and gaze out the windows, not to mention all that extra storage.
