I found this window outside a house when I was still living in NC & had to bring it w/me to OH because I knew I'd find a use for it "someday". Well my "someday" came & now it's completely transformed.
My son & I already started breaking out the windows when I realized I hadn't taken the BEFORE picture!
All you need to start this project is:
1 old window
1 child to break windows
goggles (a must!)
1 old wagon (to catch the glass)
Having fun w/the hammer!!
Next, you'll need:
2 foam sheets
fabric scraps - I used Amy Butler fabric
pretty (or not so pretty) tape for the back
Total cost: $2.00 for foam sheets - I had everything else.
Here is the back - not pretty, but I can always change the fabric, if I want.
Here is the front. Yes, I realize that the fabric is in all different directions. I think it looks more interesting that way & I can move it around whenever I want a different "look". I left a section open so I can hang my jewelry or "whatever" in the center. Also, I left the original paint on it because I like the "old" feel to it.
This will be going in my new crafting space so I can look, dream &
This is my window in my crafting area - LOVE IT!! Doesn't everyone need a bright pink angel to look over them?? ;)
This cabinet has been around for awhile.... It was first in the entry of my childhood home for many years - my Mom kept her good crystal in it. It then got passed on to my sister who kept her fish tank on it. Now I have it & it holds my jewelry making supplies.
The cabinet was VERY dated - does not go w/my decor at all, so I primed it...
Then I painted it Behr Blue Jewel - much too blue for me. Then painted it Behr Teal Zeal, not too sure of that color either, so I got out my 150 grit sandpaper & went a'sanding...
The picture doesn't do it justice - you can see the blue in some places & the white peaks through on the edges. I went to Anthropologie for the perfect handle - lovesit!!
Now I need to get some paint on those walls, now that the wallpaper is off.......
