a norrebo window seat

chris tore up a norrebo shelving unit to create a bookcase and a window seat to fit his space perfectly!


here’s what he did:
1. build up a two-shelf high norrebo bookcase unit against the wall with the taller window.
2. use the remaining third shelf of our norrebo package to build a window seat against the other window.
3. use the cushions, which were the perfect width and height, from his spare lillberg couch for his new window seat.
