An Old Chippy Window

Here's how I dressed up an old window...
 

I used a lace curtain panel left over from another project and attached it to the back of the window...

...then drilled holes in the bottom for 3 glass knobs.
W h a t  c h i p p y  g o o d n e s s!



I found this little guy in all its 80's mauve glory.
After painting and shabbying him up, I wrapped the handle with jute and...


...painted numbers on each side.

I love how my chippy window turned out!

Thank you, sweet friends, for stopping in!
Blessings,
Holly

  3. I have some lined lace panels very similar to those, and Lord knows I have old windows laying around. Hmmmmm, got me thinking, and I'm also adding numbers on the sides of my slat tote. Copy catter, dirty ratter.... that's me.

  11. So pretty! I am always amazed what a coat of paint can do. I had the cutest wooden caddy (in a dark green) in my booth for months. I took it home and painted it aqua and it was gone the next day! I am always amazed that other people cannot see the potential!
