We had this wall in our kitchen, it needed something. I wasn't quite sure what it needed, but something. I tried a tall frame, wow it was lost in the abyss of that wall. While I was at our local consignment shop, I saw they had old windows. Oh! They are big enough to fill a void on that wall! But what could I do with that old window? Pinterest to the rescue. I searched old window and up popped hundreds of ideas. As soon as I saw one with canning jars, I was sold. I went and bought the window and explained my idea to my dad. Always one for a challenge and also to make a better product - he created an amazing shelf on this window out of old barn board. He also made two inserts for the bottom windows with closers so I could put things in there. I antiqued the frame a bit more with a sander and some stain. He made a hanger for it and there it is... our beautiful window. One of the inserts I covered with chalkboard vinyl and the other is fabric. I plan to change out the chalkboard side with seasonal printable chalkboard images from where? Pinterest. The other side I will continue to add fun pictures of our family.
On the shelf is a fun basket with bottles from Michaels and also some old ball jars. Don't tell my mom - she's getting one of the darker bottles for her birthday. She also is a jar junkie.
Now, on to my next Pinterest project - a new wreath for the front door. What? don't you have a to do list that has fun projects on it?
