Windows, Windows, Windows

A friend of mine dropped off some windows and things.  
She said, "Go create something with these."
Scary for me.
She said that she loves what I create; so just do whatever I think will look good.
Oh the Pressure!
She did give me the colors that she wanted.

Such neat windows!


I started with painting the windows with a mix of Barn Yard Red Folk Art paint and some Wrought Iron.
I also stained them with some Dark Walnut Minwax Stain.
I thought I would add some chicken wire to the smaller window.

This window was going to have the wreath she gave me.  
I had some small rustic stars in my craft supplies.
I brushed a little Annie Sloan's Old White on them and clear waxed them.

Here is the smaller window.

She gave me a small star and a big star.
I painted them with Annie Sloan's Old White and waxed them with Fiddes & Sons clear and Jacobean Dark Wax.
She wanted some berries on the window.
This was the last of my burgundy and white berry supply.

I made a sign out a board from a pallet.
I painted "Family/ Friends" on the sign, because when I think of this lady, I think that Family and Friends are important in her life.

The pallet board had 2 holes right in the middle...perfect for my project.

I put holes in the star and wired it to the sign with the berries underneath.

Here is the finished second window.

I love this window--just the window itself has character.

I tied a little homespun to the big star.

I hope this is what she had in mind.
The smaller window can hang tall or wide.

I like simple.
