We had two windows replaced in the house both were bay windows. We replace the front window with another bay window and changed the dining room window to a square window. So I am going to show the new window in the front, and what's underneath the front window, which used to be on the back window...

But I need ideas on how to fix the hole I have under the window now... Hard to match the brick, because the house is 61 years old, and that brick is out of style now... So any ideas would be appreciated...

You could do a decorative panel out of a sheet of Azek cellular PVC with a trimmed out box a few inches in from each side. Paint to match the window. Azek is white and doesn't need painted, so if the windows are white vinyl you're good to go. Not sure you could get one the right size like I linked below, giving you the link to give you a picture that kind of shows what I'm thinking. You might even want to take it down to the foundation.

The look would be something like this: Raised Panel Window Trim

We're thinking alike. W/O checking availability I was going to suggest maybe horizontal use of a vinyl raised panel shutter or door header trim.

Cool project. I'm impressed you can do something this involved by yourself! I wish I had that much skill/experience.

Thanks, @Eddie_T Going to look at ideas like that, never really thought about it before...

Thanks, @Flyover, it's pretty much all self-taught... trial and error... If I really get messed up, I'll ask for help...

Thank you again guys for the suggestions...
