If you've ever come across an old window and wondered what to do with it here's an idea you might want to try sometime. It's fun and easy to boot!
My sister had salvaged a 10-pane window from an old cabin remodel job. She wanted to use it as a piece of wall art in her living room. We debated back and forth about what to do with the glass window panes. Leave them alone? Cover them with fabric? Frost the panes? Hmmm, lots of options. After a bit more discussion we decided that we could use scrapbook paper! This way it would be easy to change out the paper seasonally or whenever your heart desires. Scrapbook paper comes in a zillion different patterns, styles, and colors. The added bonus is that it's very inexpensive for this type of project.
Next up was a paint job. A can of spray paint transformed the rickety red into a fabulous cream colored window. After it dried it was ready for paper. I helped pick out the paper according to the colors that she currently has in her living room. She also wanted lighter colors for spring/summer.
There were so many awesome papers to choose from! I felt like I was a kid in the candy store. I cut the papers to the size of each window pane and attached them using double sided tape.
Here is the finished window!
I picked 5 different papers but you could do all the same or all different or alternate 2 patterns. Or do all the same paper with the exception of one pane (like the tree). How cute would that be?
I think we'll call this a patchwork window!
