Old window frames~What I did~What I did

Hello all,
I'm not sure if you remember a post that I did a while back about some old window frames that I was redoing. Here's a link to the post. 

This is one of the windows that I redid in progress.
Removing the old layers of paint, all 5 layers and adding new paint and a time worn effect.

Well I finally remembered to take some photos of the finished window frames. I put them in my booth at one of the local Antique Malls. Photos are taken with my iphone...I always seem to forget to take my camera with me.
Here's the window all finished. 
New Chippy Style
(Just look at that clean glass pane~I'm telling you that took some elbow grease. If you could have seen how dirty and painted the glass was to begin with)
 Here is the other window that I took off all the layers of paint, then repainted, distressed to look worn and added a plaster stenciled rose. I really like how this turned out.
This one may come back home~I like it that much! I can just picture it hanging in our home.

In other news...My husband built me a couple of shelves to put in my booth. For some reason I deleted the photos of the work in progress but I did manage to save one of the completed shelves. I only have one in my booth at the moment but they both are built and painted the same. I love the pop of color!

Well, that's it for me right now. I have lots of projects to paint but this cold wet, wet weather in preventing me from any painting. I am so looking forward to some nice Springtime weather! I know it's only January but I am so ready. Who's with me on that thought??

Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by.

From the Heart,

  1. Hi Jana!
    I also have 2 old window frames (with broken glass) and I planned turning them into wall mirrors. Of course, I need to repaint them.
    What are you going to do with yours?

  2. These turned out great! Love your shelf unit too.
    Debbie :)

  3. Very cute - and the shelves are great - what fun to fill them full of great goodies!

  4. Awesome job on the time worn window - oh, how I want those little chairs!
