Window Pane Makeover
I am to a point in my decorating process where I am focusing on things to hang on our walls, and I am being super picky about it! We have a lot of blank wall space to fill up, and rather than just do a bunch of picture gallery walls, I have been looking for pieces full of character to hang. Last Sunday at the flea market I came across this awesome eight pane window that my dad scored for $15, and I already had a spot in mind for it in our living room. The wood on it was a color I wasn’t too in love with, so began the decision process of which color to paint it. I went back and forth between back or an ivory color, and ended up painting it with a black chalk paint.
I taped off the window panes and put two coats on, then used a semi-gloss polycrylic to seal it. We screwed some picture hangers on the back and it went up on the wall easy. I love how it ties into our black dining room windsor chairs and creates a good flow between the two rooms. I still have a lot of work to do on our living room, but I think this was a step in the right direction!
You are so creative! I’m learning less is sometimes more when it comes to home DIYs the simplicity of this is wonderful!
You are so kind! Thank you! I totally agree, sometimes less is more! 🙂
