The sunny window seat became a plant shelf.

The sunny window seat became a plant shelf

The large east-facing, 54-pane bay window in Sue and Hugh Clark's dining room in Seattle was just about the best spot in the house to grow indoor plants. Since the owners rarely used the window seat, they decided to convert the platform into a full-time plant-display shelf.

First, the Clarks had a 3 1/2-inch-deep galvanized steel pan fabricated at a metal shop. Filled with gravel, it sits on the platform to catch drips.

To give the shelf a finished look, a piece of 1-by-4 clear fir, stained and finished to match other wood trim in the house, was mounted on the leading edge of the platform to disguise the pan. L-brackets were attached to the trim; their other arms slip under the front edge of the pan.
