Vintage Window Makeover

Ok, I am in love with the old vintage wood style windows. We have several around the house, 1 is a headboard, the others hang in our skylight with stained glass in them...and today, I did my very own project (usually dh does them) I am so excited to share this with you...these are two separate windows, although we hung them side by side...I searched the net for some distressing tips and found this site, check it out, she explains everything clearly and it is very easy to do. Dh took the wire brush to the windows first to clean them up and remove any loose paint. I started with brown paint for the base, and then used the candle, and then dark teal on top...sanded them and voila...they turned out awesome! I filled the panes with some scrapbook paper and cut out a few words and dh hung it up in the dining excited to share
