Happy Tuesday everyone!
I hope you had a chance to check out the link parties I joined
They are such a wonderful thing and I really
enjoy checking out everyone's crafts!
So I promised a few posts ago that I had a fabulous
antique find to show you.
Now I am a avid antiquer (if there is such a word).
I, however, do not like when you go into a antique
shop and the stuff is not good and way over priced.
I recently discovered a shop called Haupt Antique Market.
They are only open 4 days of the month and have FABULOUS!
Well, I have been in the market for a antique window.
And much to my excitement last week while browsing
I found this beauty:
at a lovely price of $25.00!
Now I knew I had to have it because, I want
something to put over our head board and this was
So I took it home. While I was trying to decided
if I wanted to keep the glass in or break it out
my lovely three year old decided to take matters
into his own hands and broke it for me!
My husband and I sanded that baby down (the whole
time I am wondering "Does this paint have lead?")
There were quite a few layers, it went green, blue,
pink and red.
I spray painted it, distressed it
added some hanging mechanisms
I love it!
I thought that it was a perfect place to hang my flower!
I love the simplicity of it and how great it looks!
Stay tuned for the final wrap up of this project
what I am going to put in the empty window openings!
