So, what's my pet project? I'm redecorating the extra room upstairs. It went from spare bedroom to office, to catch all room, then a bedroom again for a few months when my sister moved in. Until recently when it became a completely empty room AND the perfect blank canvas.
It started out innocently enough...I'll just paint. Then I decided to replace the outdated light fixture, so bought a cool looking chandelier. It's a small white, three light chandelier, perfect for my shabby chic style.
I was planning on hanging some great/versatile white, tab top curtains that I already have...but then I had another idea! I was inspired by this wall panel that I saw in the Acacia catalog. I thought, hey I could do something similar in stained glass, the idea being stained glass panels as shutters. They'll let in all the sunlight, but the texture of the glass will still create a screen for privacy. I was busy brainstorming ideas for the framing...
When I remembered that I have these wonderful old windows in storage! I could hardly wait to go check them out! As luck would have it they will work wonderfully!
I put the final coat of wall paint on hold so that I could take advantage of a stretch of unseasonably warm weather we've been having, to clean up the old windows, which definitely needs to be done outside. A painstaking process, but just the kind of thing I LOVE to do!!!
I hope you are having a delightful and creative week!
