An Easy Solution For the Blank Space Over the Window

When we bought the farmhouse the windows were simple and without a lot of detail. I wanted a little more drama....but I didn't have the money to afford expensive window moldings. So my husband and I came up with this solution to add flair and personality to the windows that is so easy on the pocketbook.

You just need plywood boards, picture molding and a simple 3' crown molding to complete the project! And your windows will totally thank you!

Time: 4 Hours Cost: $22.00 Difficulty: Moderate

    Love your dining room. We live in a cabin and our molding is wide wood stain boards. I have the same problem. I might try this in our master bedroom. Will be scary if I like it and want to do the entire cabin! Yikes!
