Stealing again!

Long time, no post. There is lots going on around here but it has very little to do with the decor of the home. However, here is one great project that has happened....because my only job was supervision!

My master bedroom got painted (not the topic here) and I really wanted SOMETHING on the window...besides the dirty blinds I inherited in the purchase. So I copied. Off my lovely neighbor, Jenny. Again. Thanks goodness we have different floor plans! I'd hate to copy everything! Anywho...she has a great window treatment in her family room bay window that translated perfectly my bedroom.
As usual, no "before" pictures. The hubby's friend, a REAL carpenter, took on quick look at Jenny's treatment and recreated it for me. I did nothing...not even pick out the wood. The cornice consisted on 2x6's, crown molding and rope molding. Then a little wood filler for the nail holes and corners, sanding, priming and painting.
Love it!!
I simple used tension rods to hang curtains I had stored in the closet since we moved.

The paint color? Hard to tell without natural light but it is Hinting Blue from Sherwin Williams.
Now...what would you put in the bay? Chair? Lounge? What? Help!
