Dress Up Your Window Wells | DIY Wooden Window Well Surround

A simple spring project to dress 
up those basement windows
This is one of the projects that DW designed and wanted completed last summer. 


 It was a damp rainy sort of day so I thought I would get out in the shop and tackle it. As you can see the “temporary” window well retaining wall was in pretty ugly shape as it was temporary after the home construction.

A test fit

I ran out of clamps so I had to use my drill and a box of screws to hold things in place so I could get an idea what the whole thing would look like.

Actually putting it together.

I think it is a big improvement over this . . . and it only took a couple of hours.
