Old Barn Window transformation

Okay so it's not a real barn window but it was made like 15 years ago to look like one.  Here's what it looks like now!  Its been painted, and sanded for a distressed look, fabric stapled behind, and a wreath added for the finishing touch.
I painted the wreath and then attached the ribbon to the top of the window with a thumb tack.

Ready to see the before's?  This window has been through a lot.  (you may recognize these if you've been following me for a while)

In its original form only worn out from being smashed in my storage for a few years.  But you get the idea.  It was made to look like an old window with curtains and vines going up the side.
Then I turned it into a giant picture frame.
Next makeover.  I loved it but it was missing something
 Well a year later I finally figured out what. 

I love the size and the huge impact it makes in my dinning room.


  1. I love what you did! I really like the barn window look, so I've been keeping my eye out for something like it at goodwill or yard sales! :o)

  2. This is gorgeous! Stop by Laugh, Love and Craft today for the Share the Wealth Wednesday Link Party and link this up, I'd love to have you!

  3. I love the fabric and the colorful wreath! I would have never thought to paint one of those wreaths. It turned out really cute! THanks for linking up with DIY under $5!

  4. I love projects with old windows - I've been trying to find one somewhere at a good price. Yours turned out so cute! I love the fabric you chose and the wreath really completes it.
