sprucing up a window with casing

I started out putting this in the wrong place, so I'll try again!

I have a 9í x 4í picture window in the center of our formal area, with just a simple marble sill and nothing else. Iíve been looking around for ideas on how to give it some kick with casing/molding, but canít seem to find any stock material that I can use effectively other than the basic fluted wood available from the likes of HD. Anyone have any suggestions (or even better, pictures) on how to use stock items to create an interesting effect? Has to be stock, as I donít have router facilities to give flat pieces a turned edge, for example. Note for the picture Ė the ugly old blinds are coming out!

Drywall return windows are sometimes a challenge to make look better. But without proper tools, it is hard to make things work.

Tear out the drywall on the sides and top, replace with 1x flat stock out to flush with the drywall. There is lots stock trim available, from plain ranch to very ornate, fluted, stamped designs, etc. Many are stain grade, or you can paint. Check home stores.
