My friend Lacy saw this little wall adornment in one of my pictures and said she’d like to see it up close…so here it is. With a post all to itself :)
If you know me at all you know I love thriftiness and re-purposing. I have always wanted to have some old windows to decorate with. During one of our last few months living in TN, I happened to be driving out of our little neighborhood, and there happened to be these beautifully weathered old white windows leaning up against a mail box waiting for the trash truck and the owner happened to be on the porch and I happened to stop in the middle of the road…proceed to get out of my car and ask him if I could have them…and they just so happened to fit perfectly in my trunk.
They made it through two moves and finally one is hanging happily on the wall in our kitchen holding sweet pictures of our family and some to-die-for-beautiful black and white damask scrapbook paper…(yes, I know I am a weirdo.)
I bought the little shelf underneath it at a yardsale for $2.00. It was brown and gold before I took a can of spray paint to it. It holds my beloved window just perfectly! Because the windows were free, I already had the scrapbook paper left over from our wedding scrapbook, I used left over spray paint and I think I used some photo credits to order the pictures, making them free as well, this rather large, rather perfect for us wall decor cost us a total of $2.00. Pretty sweet.
She’s a beaut’!
