Flowers & Weathered Wood

 Two of my favorite things!   As a matter of fact I was supposed to be outside planting flowers this weekend but Mother Nature had other ideas.  So instead I spent my time inside…. printing flowers.

I needed some wall d├ęcor for my freshly painted breezeway  /mudroom so I pulled out an old window that I cleaned up earlier.

0525 Window BEFORE 1
There was an odd ‘fuzziness’ on parts of it –probably from being out in the rain.
0525 Window BEFORE 2
See?  I sanded it off as best I could but it was tough to get at without breaking any glass.

0525 Window BEFORE
I dry-brushed the paint on and lightly sanded with a sanding block.  That took care of the fuzzies pretty well.  Then I chose the photos for the frames.

I wanted the pics to be removable so that I could change them out seasonally so I added 2 bands of elastic to the back to hold the pics tightly to the glass.    They are  easily removable when I want to change them up.

And this is the final result!

Easy…and free!

That's so pretty! What a great idea to use the elastics so that you can change the pictures easily. Wow, you must have an amazing printer because those prints are stunning.
