The Big Reveal!

So I guess this project is finished for now. My living room (where I plan to hang the window) has a large beige sectional, a big Pottery Barn swirly candle holder that's black iron, green and red walls, large, square, glass and iron tables, a flat screen TV on a black tv stand, and a bold patterned red and beige sisal (not sure about the spelling) rug. I'll post pics at another time, but I'm sure you can figure out that this room is not cottagy, but has more of a bold look...not necessarily soft. I'd like to cozy and soften it up, but for now, it is what it is. But like Angie at The Happy Homebody said, maybe this "weathered window" is a step in that direction.

So after a failed first attempt, I tried again and got it "about" right. I still think it could use more red, but for now, I think it will do.

I can't wait to switch out the scrapbook papers for the holidays...Christmas especially.

So here it is...dirty and moldy. I scrubbed it and hosed it down.

The first attempt...sort of a scrapbook look...I didn't like it. But hey, I've got some pages done!

So the finished product (for now). I like the clean black and white. I used a little color, but think it could use more. The great thing about this project is that the papers are just taped to the glass, and I can switch them out very easily.

Won't this look so awesome with Halloween and Christmas papers...I can't wait!
I'll hammer on the hardware to hang it later. Not now ya'll, it's 12:30am and the baby's asleep! lol Let me know if you like it!


  1. I love it and want to marry it!!
    Seriously, I love the black and white!!!

  2. I think it looks great! Should go well in your living room and soften it a bit, without standing out as totally different from the rest of the decor.

  3. thanks Kathy. I'm not sure how to write back to you, but I know what you mean. Next I think I'll get some cottagey pillows to cozy up my sectional.

  4. Love it! I saved these pics to my decorating file so I can copy u! I tape stuff too like you did so I can change it when I want. Can't wait to see it hanging in the room!
