Old Windows


A couple of months ago I was on an "old window" kick! I think I bought about 8 in a week and a half...then I got myself under control again!

This is my favorite project. I have a "four season" picture over the bed in my room, and I originally planned to have this quote under it. However, once I got the headboard up, there was no room! So this old window was heaven-sent. A good friend of mine printed up the vinyl for me, and I purchased the wreath at a garden center. My plan is to swap out the wreath for the different seasons.







This was my first attempt at chalkboard paint! This window went to a woman who planned to write her new baby's name on it and hang it over his crib. What a fun idea!








This is my front porch. I decided it needed something more than dead bugs and old leaves on it! I purchased the bench from a consignment store in Riverdale; it was originally all a pale yellow. I painted it black, with the exception of the sunflower medallions (and they got a little more yellow highlighting). Originally I had one of those big metal stars hanging over the window (which I bought without glass), but last weekend I found this big "B" at an antique store, and it had to come home with me!

Awesome! I'm definately going to keep my eye out for more old windows in the future. I did an old window project that is featured on my blog too. Bookmarking this page for future reference...

I have an old window that looks just like that and have thought about putting a letter on it. Now I have to, yours looks great.
