The Cozy Red Cottage: Old Barn Window transformation

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.

  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.
