When it comes to old windows I am obsessed. I love them so much. Partially because they have endless possibilities. I recently posted 6 Totally Awesome Things To Do With Windows. One of the awesome things I talked about was creating your own wall art by adding vinyl to an old window. I dug this large window out of my garage and created this Family Rules Window.
This window is a big one. Its about 2ft by 4ft. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with it for a long time. The glass was intact so I really didn’t want to remove it. I decided that I wanted to attempt a huge family rules subway art using my Silhouette and vinyl.
It was a big undertaking to get all that vinyl cut and on there straight. I ended up applying it to the window in sections because it was just too overwhelming to do all at once.
The window was all chippy and discolored to perfection! I did add some polycrylic to the wood frame to prevent flaking paint. The clear coat allowed me to keep the shabbiness of the window without having to worry about lead paint.
Is it just me or is this window simply stunning????
