How can I refinish a bay window?

by Tasha

I have a bay window that my children LOVE to sit in. The window is wood and the wood trim is not a "pretty" color. I have been updating the trim in our home, but painting it white... now I am onto the window. I am not sure how to tackle this, as its so used, I am afraid anything I do will result in peeling or chipping paint.I thought about sanding, priming and painting... but even then I don't know if that will be enough. Would you suggest rolling out a vinyl floor so to speak, on it? Popping off the trim and taking it over the sides? I have thought about cushions, tiles, wallpaper, you name it! Thanks!!!
