Fun Stuff

I saw this idea on a blog the other day and decided to give it a try.

I like the fact that you could make it as primitive or modern as you want depending on how you paint the frame and what paper you put in it. I chose paper that reminded me of old wallpaper and didn't paint the frame. I left it in all it's glory with gouges, chips and all.

This is such an easy project. I found the window at a salvage house, then used glue dots to place the scrapbook paper on the backside of the glass. Wallah, a new piece of artwork for under $10! I could even change out the paper during the holidays if I want.

Now, tell me, how fun is that?

Sorry the picture is a little washed out. I couldn't get it without a reflection off the glass but you get the idea.


  1. I really like that you can change out the colors for any season or any holiday.. Great idea and thanks for sharing it here in Bloggyland,

  2. So clever - and adds interest to the wall.

  3. Looks great, Lori! Don't you just love those thrifty projects? I love making something out of something salvaged, as you well know. I didn't call my self (in my old blog name) the thrift store junkie for nothing! Hee hee!

  4. I like it - wish I had some wall space left somewhere in my house! :) blessings, marlene

  5. I just love this idea. I will have to be on the lookout for windows when I visit thrift stores or salvage stores. I love new ideas.

  6. I love it. Without the glass it could be a great spot to put pictures and trinkets. You could run matching interwoven ribbons to tuck things into.

  7. oh i love this idea a lot! my friend put big black and white pictures of her kids in hers! and btw your grandbabies are adorable...oh and btw how on earth do YOU have granbabies? you look like you are in your 20's! :)

  8. okay i meant to type in your 30's just so you i feel like a fool, but you could pass for like 29 i guess... :)said the girl who keeps digging a deeper hole...
