Frosted Window

Frosted Windows

There is something about old windows I love...
They remind me of old days gone by, but also where we came from.
Imagine the things that happened in the house it was set in...
There is history here.

We were fortunate to get this window from my husband's aunt and uncle.  It was her parent's home they were going to tear down.  I saw this window and I about died!  I also wanted to have an old window.

For the longest time I didn't know what to do with it.  I cleaned with water really good and scraped off the old wasp nests.  I searched and searched for ideas for vinyl stickers, but I finally decided to give the flower vinyl stickers I found at Hobby Lobby a try.  I had to cut them down to size, but they worked!  I thought I would be able to hang it like it was, and that was before it was pre-frosted.  You couldn't see half the flowers against the colored wall!  I was bummed.... then my husband had a great idea.  Use white behind them.  So we decided to buy a can of frosted window paint and sprayed the back side of the window.  Worked like a charm!  Except the occasional white spray droplet that would splatter on the window..... Oh well... it added more charm to it.

We have thought about added black and white photos to the top window paynes.  That will have to wait though.  I like it like it is for now.

Now I just need to hang it.....
