I've got Window Panes on my Brain.

       There is something so unique about old window panes.  I am absolutely in love with the look of the cracked paint and wood and I am fortunate enough to have access to some windows. So here is how I used them to give my room a little bit of vintage flair!

      I had to clean them up a bit and I was ecstatic because I was able to use some power tools
First I pressure washed them and then after they dried I used an orbital sander to get the rest of the junk off. 

Pin It

      I was planning on painting them some more colors but the white and brown ended up being perfect for the color scheme of my room.

The sihouette paintings that you see were done with the same watercolor technique that I described here.  It is an easy painting project that almost always turns out beautiful :)

  4. beautiful! Maybe I will see you on DIY network one day?? ;)

  5. I so love recycled window panes too. This project turned out lovely. I have a huge one that I use as my back drop for most of my furniture. I knocked all the glass out and made it into a chalkboard. There are endless uses for these!
