We created this painted window frame using printer paper and a paint marker! Here’s how you can create one of your very own!
One a chilly Saturday morning, I ventured out to hit a few community yard sales with coffee in hand.
I came up to a garage and almost dropped my cherished java.
It was burlap and milk glass yumminess for days!
A sweet little gal was selling leftovers from her wedding that she had just celebrated.
I instantly scooped all the goodies up and noticed this window she had leaning up against the side wall.
She used the window as a seating chart for her wedding by putting names on the glass with a paint pen – such a cute idea!
I adore everything about this. The verse is one of my favorites. I love painted signs, and the old door!
Oh. My. Word!
I knew I could recreate the same verse with this window! I added it to my stash and drove away giggling like a little girl! Here’s how to do it!
Painted Window Frame
I began by cleaning off wedding writing. Her old paint came off with fingernail polish remover and I gave it a good cleaning.
I played around with fonts and sizes until I found my favorites. I taped the paper template to the back of the glass and went over each letter with a paint pen.
It was difficult with the glass between the paper and the pen, but once I found the ‘sweet spot,’ my eyes stopped crossing long enough to complete the work.
The shutters hanging around the window frame are my old shutters that I distressed. You can read about those here.
