Window Shopping

I found these great old windows a couple of years ago. They needed a lot of work. I bought about 12 of them for $30. It was a great deal. I fixed them all up and only kept two (how many windows does one need in addition to the actual ones you can see out of?)!! The process was long and ugly at times. I did this several years ago, so I don't have any pictures of the process. Some of the glass was loose and needed to be fixed. I used some commercial caulk to solve that problem. They all needed to be sanded and repainted. The window pictured above is used as a chore chart. It has been used for hanging kids artwork, and during the holidays writing our service or acts of love/kindness board. There is really no limit to what you can use it for. My sister-in-law uses hers as a calendar. I made several others that I nailed little clothes pins to the top and middle portion of the wood to hang pictures from. THE HOW TO: After all the dirty work was done(i.e.: washing, sanding and making sure the glass was okay), I painted the wood cream. I found tissue paper with a cream background and the red print and mod podged it on. Finally I put a sealer on it. I love how this one turned out. I will have to create another project just to show you how simple it is to mod podge tissue paper onto something!
