The structure of the project

This DIY project shows the transformation of MDF panels into a stylish and practical windowsill. Jovan has chosen to use MDF Primed 18 mm, a material known for its strength and ease of processing. The design is clever: a raised windowsill that not only serves as a beautiful plateau for decoration, but also offers extra storage space thanks to the integrated steps and chest. The white MDF fits seamlessly into the light interior and offers a fresh, modern look.

The striking thing about this project are the yellow accents that give a playful effect and make it unique. The clean lines and simple, but practical design ensure that this piece of furniture fits perfectly in Jovan's living space.

The ideal place in the house

The windowsill is in the living room, close to the window and provides an excellent overview of the garden. The windowsill also serves as a comfortable seat to relax with a cup of coffee within reach. It is a perfect addition to the room, where functionality and style go hand in hand.

The benefits of making it yourself

By making this project himself, Jovan was able to specifically adjust the sizes to the space that was available. The flexibility in dimensions ensures that every centimeter of the living room is used optimally, something that is often more difficult with pre-made furniture pieces. In addition, making it yourself offers the opportunity to save on costs and choose high-quality materials that match your personal style.
