Windows, Windows, Windows

A friend of mine dropped off some windows and things.  
She said, "Go create something with these."
WOW!
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.


Simple....
I like simple.
