SOMETHING I WHIPPED UP



 I have been procrastinating on this window. Its been sitting in the house moving from one place to another........for months!
Now I had to *&#$ or get off the POT!
So I  %^@*. 

I took my can of Frosted Glass and frosted the edges of each window pane....
next I cut pieces of scrapbook paper and glued them in 3 of the panes....
then taken prints off of  Magic Moonlights' Free Images and soaked them in tea water to age them...
I placed and glued the prints in the remaining panes....






I loved the black on the frame of the window, which I picked out of the garbage.....
And it took me all of an hour and a half.......

Great idea. I have an old window that I have been trying to decide what to do with. This just might be it. Thanks for sharing.

I love your window art. I know where there are some old windows and I need to go get them and do something like that. I also love your countdown to Halloween! I'm starting to plan my Halloween decor. Come July....I always start getting in the mood for Halloween.

Neat idea, I love old windows and paint them myself. I love bright colors so that is my usual choice. I see your a big fan of Halloween, too. It is my favorite holiday for decorating!

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

I like this idea. I actually have a window frame with roses in each one that is sitting on my mantel. Its really pretty. I bought it at Home Goods,..not sure how to do it, but people have asked it I made it. Your tutorial gives me a clue as to how to make my own!

LOVE IT! I am a huge fan of old windows, I have them spread out in different places throughout my house. Yours turned out SO cute!
I am having a hard time seeing some of your pictures because that little halloween thingy on the side pops up in front of your pics. Is there someway to close it when I'm reading your posts? I ended up just clicking on your pics to make them bigger so I could see them. (just thought you might like to know it was happening) :)
Have a great day!

I love what you did with the window. Are you enjoying the break in our weather. I am hoping to finally be able to work in the flower gardens. I must say this was an especially long winter here in Western New York. Have a wonderful weekend.

Hi Pattie...

Your old chippy window turned out gorgeous, my friend! I just about cry when I see a project such as this...we just got rid of all kinds of old, chippy windows...eeeks! I love the frosted effect that you did on the window panes...very pretty! Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful window and the tutorial with us for the Sunday Favorites repost party, my friend!

Have a super sweet Sunday!
