I took the super easy way out of making art for the sun room. In other words, I didn't make anything. I failed with the stacked mirrors and I'm just too busy to make paint-chip art...although I will conquer this one day...so I used what I had on hand and hung a free window. Sounds so exciting, right?! Well, it might not be exciting, but it fills the space.
Now I know you are probably thinking - a plain window? This is not just a plain window though. I repurposed it into a frame with a little jute twine, and our goofy mustache photos.
And since this is a very old window and has seen better days, I caulked around the window frame to make sure the glass wouldn't fall out in the middle of the night. I also dry-brushed some of the blue paint onto the frame to tie it in with the built-ins. Instead of cleaning up the glass and removing all the old paint, I left it because I think it adds character.
Isn't that better?! It is perfect for the sun room. Adds a little family fun to the room for free! Yep, all supplies were on hand so this was a zero dinero project...which makes it all the better. And I still have a boat-load of free windows to do something with. One great idea I saw was from a fellow Arkansan, Cara at Living the Home Life. Check out her dining room wall:
Something close to this might be making an appearance in my house in the very near future.
