Was I EVER excited when I saw these beautiful, antiquated, white framed, wooden windows sitting in our garage....! Oh, the possibilities!
Well, this happened over a year ago and sadly I am just now completing my last project with the last of the windows. I will say that I donated two of them to a friend/neighbor, then I donated one to one of her friends who was also inspired.
Leaving 2 for us :)
The first one I used as a picture frame to house one of my large, abstract paintings of a Colorado aspen grove. It now sits nicely in front of our fireplace. You can see it here. And, without further ado... the last window was used to make a chalkboard window that now hangs in our dining room!! I don't know what took me so long to do this project, because I absolutely love the way it turned out!
What you need:
What to do:
Wipe down all window panes with window cleaner and paper towels
Cover all frame pieces with painter's tape
Spray paint the window panes (I needed 5 coats)
Remove the painter's tape
Hang the window
Write/draw/doodle/jot your little heart out!
