Decorative Window Ledge

I am sharing a little change made to the old window that hangs above the sofa.
The simple shelf adds some contrast against my very ‘beige’ space.

Two brackets and two 1×4’s attached directly to the window.
That iron bicycle was a Homegoods find from a few years ago.
It’s a summery decoration.

I love the little shelf. Really adds a lot to the already pretty window. This reminds me of a picture I just saw of a French door hung horizontal w/a shelf. It's something I'd like to do.

I like the contrast the shelf and bike make. Such a nice vignette. Is the bike attached?

Love it! Since following your blog, I've been trying to find a window, no success! The trike is perfect.

Wow, I loved that window before but the addition of the shelf has added more dimension and it's even more amazing!! That bike was a great find and looks great on your shelf with your topiary's!!

I am sort of surprised you don't have a real full size rusty bike up there on that ledge!Bliss
