I love old windows. They are so versatile. I've painted on them, I've made them into blackboards. I've created doors and tables with them, added shelves to them and as you see in the picture I've even hung two as art on my bedroom wall....ok, ok, they are old cabinet doors but you get the idea. ;-)
This is a window I finished this week and took to Shabby Cottage at the Corner Nest.
It got painted, distressed and glazed.
Adding a piece of vintage crochet lace on the back, a couple shabby coat hooks and two old table legs, not only added cottage charm, but functionality as well.
Yesterday was a quiet day and I was able to get to my worktable and create some fun with a revamp of a tired, worn out paper mache box that had seen better days. Sorry I didn't think to take a before picture, but trust me, it was sad.
I covered the sides with decorative paper I digitally designed. (I will be adding this one to the store.)
I painted the lid rim.
Months ago I created some fabric paper and thought it worked wonderfully for the lid.
I added some vintage lace...
burlap, a vintage image, some bling and some rust...
and called it done.
I think I will take it to the Corner Nest space.
Our Dalmation, Cleo, is a Daddy's girl. If she can't find her dad when one of them has been outside and comes back in, she will run to every room of the house until she finds him.
I'm so glad we bought a chair and a half so many years ago because that is "their" chair.
Awake or asleep.
I hope everyone has been having as beautiful fall weather this weekend as we have!
Toodleloo from the mountains!
