I built a windowseat bench with storage for the kids room.
This space had been occupied by a desk:
My young kids never used the desk so I moved it to the master bedroom, you can see that makeover here.

I also made the pillows and cushion which is three layers of foam mattress topper inserted into the fabric.
I used 3/8" rope for the piping on the cushion:

It's not perfect or professional but it works:
And my girls like it:
