Before & After: Built-in Shelving and Window Seat

I spend a lot of time in my office, but for over a year I was working out of a mess (see below).  After much planning and research I came up with a plan to give myself some much needed storage and Mr. Paws a much needed - and deserved - window seat.

These intructions from the This Old House website gave me the inspiration and basic directions. 

I already hady two RAST chests from Ikea, some gorgeous old wood planks left up in my attic, vintage brass handles from Etsy, and fabric for the window seat.  All I needed to buy was a pre-assembled kitchen wall cabinet, two 6 foot 2x4 pieces of lumber, stain and shelf brackets.
