Kitchen Window Shelf

I completed this project in March of 2017, after we returned from a vacation to Jamaica. For more information about that trip, and about Jamaica itself, please see the Jamaica post in the Travel section of this blog.

While staying at a wonderful condo in Ocho Rios, both Deborah and I were taken with a number of the unusual features that had been added to the condo when it was prepared for use as a rental site on VRBO (Vacation Rental By Owner – AirBNB before there was an AirBNB).  One of the features that particularly impressed us were the unusual, wooden window treatments in the home.  Here are a few examples.

After we returned home, I was interested in trying to do something similar for one of our windows, and our south facing kitchen window seemed like the best candidate.  So I began the project, first designing it in a Powerpoint, as I do with almost all of my projects.  Then I bought the materials and it began to take shape.  Once completed, I went around to numerous antique dealers looking for multi-colored glass items to place on the shelves that would take advantage of the afternoon sun.

The following pictures show the design and build process and, finally, the end result.
