designed-for-life: Lacking space? A great space solution using a bay window. Be clever with the space and use thicker painted wood and once you’re done with your newly created study nook, remove the stool, clear everything from the surface and place some cushions, a throw and VOILA! You have yourself seating to enjoy the views or simply the sun. Or why not buy some beautiful cane baskets to hide anything unsightly and store under the bench.
