shelf over windowSome time ago someone posted an idea to use shelves over windows. I had commented that I did the same thing only I used wooden door gingerbread trim to make the side brackets so that I could hang my curtain rods through them. Someone contacted me and asked me to post a picture. I used basic wooden shelving and trimmed the edges with rope molding.

My husband constructed a long shelf over my French doors in my dining room going to the our back deck, he used Knotty Pine paneling from his parents home so it has a sentimental value to us. I have a collection of teapots and teacups that's it on this shelf above the back doors and also there is a shelf in the adjoining wall with books about two angels and tea cups and tea pots of all sizes.

I had collected many tin containers and had no place to display them. We decided to put small shelves over the windows in the guest bedroom to serve as display shelves.
