- “Use what talents you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.” ~Henry Van Dyke
- Spring is in the air- I can feel it! Even though our green grass and our tulip bulbs are buried under the white snow, we all know- Spring will come, it always does. Spring makes me think of birds, and birds make me think of my Grandma Shirley, she loved birds, and that, makes me want to create something that says ‘Spring!’ Over the past few days I’ve been working on a project using an old window out of a 1924 farm house and I am finally done! This window is now for sale & on display at The Living Room Coffee House in Eau Claire, WI .
- I started with a little old white window from a 1924 Farm house. To some of you, this probably doesn’t look like too much, but to me…when I came across this window, it gave me a feeling- I knew it needed a second chance at life-another opportunity to tell it’s story and fill someones home with a story.
I cleaned the window-glass & frame, front & back. Then gave it a nice coat of yellow paint. Allowed the paint to dry (completely), and brushed it with some Minwax Poly + Stain in the shade of ‘Espresso’ and wiped off a majority of the stain, leaving it darker only in places that had dents/dings, and around the edges to give it an aged look.
I once again washed the glass part of the window and applied a wall decal , then drilled holes and placed eye hooks & an old chain from a dairy farm on top of the window, and now it is ready to be hung in a new owners home!
This beautiful one of a kind upcycled window is for sale! It can be viewed and purchased at The Living Room Coffee House on Cameron Street in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
