Vintage Windows Project

Recently, bought some old windows for 1.00 and 2.00 each~~excited that I could find them this cheap~~regrets that I didn't buy them all!

I did snag up several tho'; different shapes and sizes:

~~and at my local junk shop, picked up this ornamental swag piece for 3.00 to use as a decorative header after painting it and the window with a fresh coat of white chalk paint~~

~~had to add some stencils~~and here's the finished project ready to go to the shop booths~~

~have a fun weekend and may the Junking Gods be with you~


Here's a great party going on:

  1. What a find , and what a fantastic job you did. What type of stencil did you use? Happy weekend.

  2. Great Job...I love it! The swag really dresses it! Very Nice!

  3. care to share how you did the stencils? Beautiful!

  4. I love it!...I have an ole window,and I'm looking for ideas,this is great.

  5. I love what you did with this fabulous old window and I'm sure it won't take long for someone to take it home. What a bargain on the windows!!

  6. Love how this project turned out:)
    So Lovely!

  7. OMG - I just love this idea - have to be on the look out for old windows now lol
    They turned out gorgeous!
    Your newest follower - would love to have
    you come by for a visit and follow back when you can :)

  8. Nice work on that bargain window. A couple of summers ago, I found several windows for $2 each and bought them for my son. Of course, since I've wanted to pick up a few for myself, I just can't find them for that price now. Yours is absolutely lovely all dolled up!

  9. You did an amazing job! Such a beautiful touch to transform an old window! Thanks for the inspiration.

  10. Patty,
    I love how this project turned out and have been wanting to try stenciling too. Is there a book you'd recommend or site that I could learn something about this technique. You did a fantastic job and I love it.

  12. I am always amazed by your creativity! Great job!
    Blessings, Joanne

  13. Hi Patty,
    I couldn't find your email on your page so thought I would post here - I have been browsing your blog for well over an hour and am only about halfway through your posts. Your style and talent are amazing - I can't believe I haven't seen your blog before now. You have a dedicated new follower!

  14. I love how you played those windows artistically! With the all-white scheme, they definitely look timeless. That’s a lot of credit to the chalk paint. They never really fail in giving you that vintage appearance. I’m sure they will bring more heads turned to your shop’s direction. ;)

  15. Beautiful! You absolutely did a great job in adding intricate designs on the vintage window. I don’t know, but when I first saw the upshot, I immediately thought that it’s a window sign for wedding shops. Hihi! :P

  16. @Tameka, maybe it was because of the floral ornament. :D Anyway, kudos to you, Patty, for doing such a great job in reinventing old and used windows into something creative! Actually, this old-stuff-turned-to-signboard didn’t look like it was made from a window. :P
