A finished project

A few years ago we saw a project on HGTV where one of the designers turned an old window into a picture frame.  We just loved it!  Ever since then we kept looking for the right window so we could make our own.  We came across one on Craigslist and finally got around to doing it (after having it for over a year...)!  We have seen other people who have also done this since then.  There are a lot of other neat ideas floating around out there.  Don't you just love when you finish a project that has been on the back burner for so long?!

Here it is...

Before...



















This little elf looks as if she is thinking "Laura and Michele when are you going to finish this project?" Since we have had the window for quite some time!!  : )

After...




















P.S.  We passed the Goodwill today, had to stop in but no little elf friends in site...We will keep you posted!  : )

Hugs,
Laura and Michele

Hi Laura and Michele, Thank you so much for visiting my blog today. I appreciate your comment left very much. I have had such fun looking through your posts. Very fortunate for me to have found just the information I need to accomplish several painting projects. You have inspired me to take the plunge! I love that you blog together. Wonderful! Have a lovely week. Elizabeth
