Custom window stools in the front room...

The previous owners didn't have windowsills (actually, the inside sill is actually called the "stool") on every window, so we made a command decision to put the frame moulding around all of the windows in the bedrooms and sitting room and leave the stools off in those rooms.

Using the old stools as templates, Ken designed custom stools for all of the windows in the living room and dining room. It's hard to see in this picture, but it has a decorative routed bottom edge and the apron (the piece of wood below the stool) is plain. These will be primed and painted white to match the moulding and baseboards.

We think the windows were done this way to maximize available wall space for putting furnitue as close to the wall as possible. We figured 2-3 inches missing from every wall would take away valuable space for a bookcase or a chair near the corner of either room.
