In the mean time, I've completed another old window frame. If you've read my blog very long, you know how I love to redo old window frames. I've posted about several of them Here and Here. Now I have about 40 or so old windows, my little stash of them are growing. I can't help myself. My husband thinks that I have enough...me..not so much. I pick them up when ever I find them at a decent price and they're not rotting to pieces.
I don't have a lot of photos of the process. But it's the same process as usual. Scrape, scrape, scrape~sand, sand, sand and lots of cleaning to get the old paint off. Sometimes I wonder if it's even worth it though always in the end I'm happy to see the transformation.
Here are the few photos that I did manage to take. Seems as though lately, I forget to take a lot of photos. I just crawl off into the project before thinking about it.
Can you imagine...I forgot to take another photo until after I took the window to my booth at the Antique Mall.
Here it is completed. I took two photos and wouldn't you know both of them turned out blurry. Go figure. So I went with the least blurry one. (I'm no photographer by any stretch, we'll just call me the picture taker)
While scrapping away on this window, one of the many paint colors on it was a green, very similar to it now. I like the green, it looks old fashion to me and all the paint streaks are very similar to what was on the window pane.
Why is it, years ago when someone painted windows, they would just paint onto the pane 3" or 4" and never bother to clean it off? I just don't get it! That would drive me nuts looking out my window and seeing all that paint on the glass panes.
Well, another old window complete. Yay! Now I'm off to complete another project that I'm excited about. Will share it with you in a day or two.
I hope where ever you're at that you're having a bright and happy sun-shiny day!
Thanks so much for your visits
They mean the world to me!
