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.

Your decorating with the bike is just so darn cute–I love it! It makes me want to go for a bike ride! Very appropriate decorating for this time of year 🙂

i am a cyclist and i LOVE it!!!


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


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


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.


Que bonito. Un saludo desde Madrid
