Our kids playroom has four wonderful window seats. They are each about five feet long and have two drawers under each one. We have long talked about building bookshelves on either side of the window seat. I think that children’s books should face outward so that kids can see the covers and not the spines. I have always been inspired by this photo of Kelly Wearstler’s children’s library.
If you don’t have someone to build the bookshelves, or do not want to spend that much money, but still get the look, rain gutters work just as well.
