    I'm not sure of your question, but if you would like to put a fake window over your sink, I have actually done this. I took an old window, someone was throwing out and and old calendar of cows, put the pictures of the cows in each pane of glass(there were 6). You can paint the frame to look new or distress it some, which is what I did. I added a shelf under it, hung it up and then put a valance on it to match my real windows. It's great, like having a view, have gotten many compliments on it.

    I would put a nice landscape painting. Just recently saw where they used a mirror to help reflect some light.

  • I would use mirror behind a recycled window frame. If you don't want to watch yourself doing dishes frost the mirror with a spray on frost. Just be cautious not to damage the mirror finish on the back. Add a valance, cornice or simple tie-back curtains for color.

    I think a framed mirror or an old window frame over it is a great idea it also lightens up the area. Perhaps some shutters on the side would give you that country kitchen look.

    You could hang curtains then behind them you could hang a mirror or piece of glass with an outdoor picture or your favorite outdoor scene of flowers, garden, etc. The glass could be mounted with a plate hanger.

    Get an old window that fits in that spot above your sink. Then find a, outdoor picture that you love, and place it behind the window (to avoid ruining pic) and hang. Add a little valance above and a shelf under it with a little flower vase. Voila! Instant window!
