Painted Window Frame: The blogger transforms an ordinary window to something extraordinary with paint pens!

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!

Then I remembered I pinned this sign while wasting time… er, perusing Pinterest and fell in love!

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!

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.

A printer and a paint pen was all it took! It hung beautifully over my Faux Fireplace mantel in our old house and just look how it looks now in our ‘Almost Farmhouse‘!

  1. It was such a long time ago, I’ll have to do some research on the fonts. I think your project against the shiplap would look lovely!

  2. An absolutely beautiful way to praise the Lord! What fonts did you use? I have a ton of the same windows from our old home and am redoing our bathroom with shiplap. Something like that would look so graceful on the wall when I’m taking a bath! I try to remember my Savior everywhere – no exceptions!!!!!

  3. i love this and made something similar for my hubby's birthday. i used vinyl lettering rather than paint, which was also pretty easy. i love the verse idea, too. will try that on another project that i've got in the works! thanks for the great inspiration!

  4. Hi Jen. I'm visiting from The Shabby Creek Cottage. I didn't even realize what was written on your window from the thumbnail, but this is my favorite verse! So glad I stopped by. Its beautiful, and a great idea.

    Blessings!

  5. this is beautiful! i would not of thought to do it that way – very clever.
