UPCYCLING AN OLD WINDOW
I found an old window at a salvage warehouse and thought it would make a good addition to my living room walls. The only problem was it was old, dirty and falling apart.
But I had a plan.
I could see it all spiffed up and shiny new even though it looked like this:
I paid $12 for it and asked DH to load it up. He shook his head and took it home for me. See, DH can't envision like I can, so he often wonders how I can make something like this look good enough to use for decor.
Fortunately he's willing to help and has knowledge from past experience that helps me transform a piece.
I didn't prime because I WANTED old stains and flaws to show through. I was preserving the years by just painting right over all the varied colors and bumps and bruises to maintain the antique, worn look.
I hung it in my living room and added a wreath I got on clearance for $3 at Joann Fabrics.
