The windows were free . . . they were sitting outside of the college house my daughters are living in and no one wanted them so they came home with me. They had been outside a long time and were covered in grass, paint, dirt, doo . . .
After a good scrubbing, I used Goof Off to remove as much of the old paint and other assorted 'stuff' from the glass then taped them off and painted with flat, white paint using a dry brush technique so as not to lose the 'worn' look. I distressed a bit more and added some dark and clear wax until I liked the look.
After spray painting eye hooks white, I added some chain that I bought and hung pictures using the screw back-type vintage earrings. This picture was taken while my daughter was studying in India last year.
Here is our other daughter . . . she's studying in Spain right now. (They're identical twins)
Here's my son and daughter-in-law . . . they're wedding was last August. I got these prints from Snapfish (who I HIGHLY recommend!). They are so reasonable. I got all of these reprints plus 10 more for 2.59 and that included the shipping. A little tip: To keep the photos from curving, I just attached them to cardstock and trimmed them off which made them nice and flat to hang.
I have a feeling that these windows are going to become like my "dress up doll" ladder . . . always changing with the seasons and holidays. But for now, I like them just plain and simple.
