From Junk to... ART!! Old Wood Window: Vinyl, Wall Art, Graphics, Lettering, Decals, Stickers

This was a special request to give as a Christmas gift.

Before...
Scared ya, huh???
You were probably thinking who would ever give an old dirty window as a gift.  (As you can tell this isn't the exact window, but it was crunch time to get the finished project completed, so this was an after thought.)



After...



I absolutely LOVE how it turned out.  We sanded down the window.  Painted and distressed it.  Cleaned the glass, applied the vinyl, and viola!  Love, Love, Love!  The gold vinyl complimented the antique look and the hardware perfectly.  The saying is a scripture that reads...

"Organize yourselves, prepare every needful thing, and establish a house of prayer, fasting, faith, learning, glory, order, a house of God." D&C 88:119

  10. Hi, I am nicole from Keepin' the Castle. I was wondering where you got your image for the tree?

  11. Thanks everyone for the comments. I love them, & I read each one of them.

    Nicole I made the tree design myself. If you would like to purchase one, I'd be happy to make one for you. I would just need to know the size and color. Let me know!

    Thanks,
    Tara

  12. I love this window. Can it be kept outside? I mean will it withstand the elements?

    Thanks

  13. Hi Jane! Thank you for your interest in this window design! I don't see why this couldn't be displayed outside. The vinyl decal would be placed on the back of the glass so it wouldn't be in the elements if the window is hung or displayed say on the side of a house or building. Please let me know if I can answer any other questions. Thank you!!
