The Bedroom Window

No, I haven't broken a window;
I just added one.
Here is a little update to my bedroom.
As soon as we put our new craigslist bed in our room,
 (I made over HERE)
 I realized that the sign I had made that hung above the bed didn't look right.
I wanted an old window for that spot.
So I moved my Fruit of the Spirit sign to this corner--Perfect!
I am totally convinced our neighbors think I am crazy.
They were replacing all of their windows, so I went over and asked them what they were gonna do with all the windows.
They said, "Take them all!".
I took 15 :P
I love look of the six pane window.
I painted it in Annie Sloans Duck Egg to match the nightstands.
I was careful not to sand the old paint just in case it was lead paint.
ASCP was perfect to use for that reason alone.
My window definitely needed something.
Here are some details of the finished window waxed with clear and dark wax.
I love the Duck Egg with the dark wax, but I definitely need to use the clear wax with it.
It just gets too dark for me.
I only did one coat of the Duck Egg and let a little of the white come through.

My one kiddo suggested I string some of my dried lavender from my garden over the window.
That is just the cozy look I wanted.

I love my window:)
I already had the paint and wax.

  1. Love it, Tammy! And the lavender Idea was perfect. Looks like your kids are developing into being very creative too.

  2. No, I love your window! No, I love all your windows! I was hoping when you mentioned them earlier that you took all of them. They make great cabinet doors, screen dividers... well, you know how I can go on and on about windows. I am the person who has at least one window hanging in each of my windows! I love the distressed look with the duck egg!

  3. Nice job Tammy and I love how you strung the lavender across it! Nice save with the windows...I'm sure we will see more creative ideas...Thanks for the share!

  4. Great find!! Love the colour of it too!

  5. I really like that Tammy. It completes your room now. :)

  6. Perfection.... Dee from My Painted Stuff

  7. What a score on the windows! I loooove that CL bed! So pretty!I'm currently making over our bedroom too. I'm getting anxious to get to decorating it! Had to do all the painting and mundane details first.I won't have much wall space as our ceilings are slanted so I will have to choose wisely what I hang! Traci

  8. You are so creative. It looks perfect. Your home is one of my favourites. Great score on the windows.

  9. This is so pretty and the lavender is a great touch. Smart kiddos! I'm glad you said that about the lead paint because I bought a couple of old windows a few months ago but then I was afraid to sand them because of lead paint so I left them in my garage wondering what to do with them. The chalk paint is a great idea and I love the dark wax look over it. Thanks for linking up at Doodles & Stitches!

  10. Very charming!! Thanks for linking up at Feathered Nest Friday!

  12. Beautiful job Tammy - I'm in love with too - the lavender makes it looks like a real french " chateau "
