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 1x4'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?

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