Living Room Design: From Casual to South of the Border

Host Joan Steffend and designer Susan Weber make a formal living room more casual.

Window Seat – $36

The seat is constructed from a salvaged door that has been covered in foam and fabric. The back of the seat is mounted directly to the wall. Legs are made for the front of the seat out of salvaged 4 x 4 posts and decorative finials.
