Window Pane Transformation

Whoever decided that old window panes are something to paint and decorate I love you. Awhile back ago I found this old window at a local antique shop with my mother in law. I think it cost me a total of $22 and it's gotten its money's worth! I was inspired by this adorable pin on Pinterest for the nursery.

However my window pane is much larger as it had to accommodate all the guests to our wedding! Here it is after makeover #1.
It was sort of a grayish color and I also didn't try very hard to completley cover the old green paint that was underneath. The window was so old that I found when I tried to sand off the color the wood was breaking off. So I just decided to paint over it. That's the difference between when David does something and I do something. Whole ass vs. half ass.

After the wedding a couple had people asked if I was selling the window pane. I am so glad I didn't even though for about a year I had no real purpose for it. Makeover #2 happened when David drilled it so I could hang it vertically on the wall. I strung up some photos just for fun across but always felt like it was not very "adult". However it stayed up and took up a blank wall for about a year.
This is where makeover #3 begins as you can see I began painting it white last night. Well I can say that after three hours of standing and painting (with Valspar Optimus Non-Toxic, No VOC paint) that I am pretty happy with the results! I have some other things I am going to add to it, but I will try and keep those under wraps until the big nursery reveal. I am having so much fun doing little projects. However the more pregnant I get (can't believe I am already 7 months along!) the more I realize I need to take it easy. This mama is a tired bird!
The paint is not perfect but as I was explaining to David last night, it's perfectly imperfect. Now he just needs to go and scrape the toothpaste out of the holes as I was trying to ghetto fill them. I also made the bunting out of paint sample swatches from the local hardware store! Super easy! Excited to see it all come together!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! I am off on a girls trip to Cambria and can't wait for a little relaxation!

  10. You are my hero of the day for properly using apostrophes in "it's gotten its money's worth" haha. FOR REAL though. I love how the window pane looks with all of its different uses, but the bunting is definitely my fave! Great job!

  12. SUCH a good idea to use a windowpane for seating assignments! I actually wish I would have thought of that haha. My family has a repurposed one on the mantle above our fireplace at home - love how versatile they are, you can literally use them for a million different things!
