Storage under the bay window.

Storage under the bay window

Taking its form from a bay window--and sitting directly beneath a small one--this 6-foot-wide, 5-foot-tall storage bin combines charm with practicality. Its lattice facase neatly conceals a water spigot, hoses, an electrical outlet, a drip-irrigation timer, and other paraphernalia.

Lattice panels--the side ones fixed, the center one hinged--mount to 4-by-4 posts anchored on piers. Mitered 2-by-12s make the cap, whose border extends 10 inches beyond the window bay. Small flowerpots drop into 6-inch-wide holes cut in the cap. Drip-irrigation lines run through the cap behind each pot.

Landscape architect Bill Derringer of Atherton, California, designed the cabinet for homeowner Michele Musy.
