This week's theme is "Old Windows". So I thought I would show you what I did with an old window that my brother in law picked up for me when he was at the dump.
I wish I had a before photo. But I did this prior to blogging. Basically the old window looked exactly like it does now. All I had to do was clean it. It was already painted white & all the glass was intact.
Once I got the window I then had to decide what to do with it. I had no idea. Then one day I was roaming through the mall & saw a black & white poster of Paris from the early 1900's. I fell in love with the poster immediately. But it was $40.00. What? Who in their right mind pays $40.00 for a poster? Someone must or those kind of stores wouldn't still be in the mall. But I wasn't going to pay that much for it. But I knew it would look perfect behind my old window.
What's a cheap skate girl to do? eBay to the rescue!!! I found the same poster on eBay for less than 1/2 the price. Still more than I wanted to pay, but I had to have it. So I got it.
I had to cut it down a little bit to fit the inside of the old window. I then bought a piece of foam core & cut it to the same size. I then used spray glue to adhere the poster to the foam core & stuck it inside the window. It fit perfect.
So now every morning I get to wake up to vintage Paris.
Not a bad view if I say so myself.
Makes me smile every time I pass by.
Reminds me of our trip to Paris in 2003. I need to go back someday. But until then, this view is the next best thing.
I hope you liked my view of Paris in my old window. Sorry about the glare in most of the photos. There is a window right across the room that is being reflected in the photos. The first photo is actually when I had the window on a different wall so there isn't much glare in that one.
Now head on over to Funky Junk Interiors to see what everyone is sharing this week.
