More Windows

I have a thing for old, antique, vintage windows.  They just look cool.  Weather you fancy them up, repurpose them or just leave them in their original state they are so fun.

I have painted my fair share of windows these past couple of years.  You can see an example HereHere & Here.  I love how versatile they can be. 

A couple of months ago a friend of ours was remodeling an old cottage & was replacing the windows. He gave me four of these beauties.

They are BIG!  I'm talkin 32" square.  I so would have loved to just leave them in their original state & hang them all together, either side by side or two on top & two on bottom.  Alas, I just don't have that kind of wall space.  So instead I get to play & create four fun pieces.  

I gave this one a coat of The Vintage Farmhouse Distressing paint, the color is called "Carriage House".

Now for the fun part.  I have been on this "Bird on a wire" kick lately, just can't seem to get it out of my system.  

How cute is that!?

I have it hanging in my booth.

I already have planned out the next two & they are both different without birds.   Do you have antique windows in your decor?
What's your favorite thing to do with old windows?

Thank you for stopping by for a visit.  Check us out on Facebook to see what we're up to.  Have a great day!  Dee

  5. Awesome! I love seeing what you make. :)


  6. Hi Dee! Love that piece. Where do you have your booth? Are you in a big city?
    I think that would be a great way to move merchandise.
    Happy Painting!
