I, on the other hand, I love my left-behind holes in the wall! I thought I'd show what the previous owner of our house did with them.

The thing I like most is that the previous owner created some interesting shelves that can easily be removed if you want to close the windows. See that shelf on there? It's that nice thick oak wood. It has pieces on the underside that hold it nicely in place. Here's one out of the window so that you can see both sides.

The great thing about the shelves is that they provide additional room for things that might otherwise take up counter space. One shelf has the television and the other holds my paper towel stand and a bowl of fruit. Sometimes it is a good idea to leave holes in the wall.
