Old Vintage Window

Thrifting in North Carolina is always on my list.
My favorite find this week was this old window.
 It's all chippy and distressed.
One side was white.
Perfectly worn edges.
The other side was this vintage green color.
All I did was clean it.
I decided to use the old green side. 
It looked a little plain. I wanted to add a 
banner or bunting across the top but didn't
have the time or patience. 
I grabbed some leaves I had picked up 
and tucked them into the wire at the top.
I was going to remove the wire, 
but as it turned out it came in handy.
My plan was to add it to the top of the
entertainment center.
before
 after
Replaced the other things on top.
 I really like it.
$5.00 for hours of fun!

Cheers!
Rita

Rita,
Adore your $5.00 window! I, too, have a vintage farmhouse window that came out of my husband's boyhood home. We decorate it during the season's as well!
Fondly,
Pat
