New Use for an Old Window

I bought this old window when I was still pregnant.  Carey and I found it at an antique show for just $10.  Score!  I was so excited and had big plans to up-cycle it as soon as we got Gray’s newborn photos.  After he arrived, I realized that taking and shower and brushing my teeth would become luxuries during my day.  The first 10 weeks of his life are somewhat of a blur now.  Thank goodness I have these sweet pictures (by Julie Dawkins Photography) to help me remember just how sweet and precious he was during those foggy-brain days.  We took his 4 month pictures yesterday and I can’t wait to see how they turn out.  I’m on the lookout for another old window to repurpose.

This is what it looked like when we brought it home.  It was pretty dirty and chipped.

Carey pulled that metal piece out with pliers. The, I sanded it down and taped around the edge of the glass.

I added a quick coat of off-white paint we had from a different project.

Carey added some photo hooks to the back and we mounted it on the wall.

All so we can stare at this cute face every time we come into our bedroom.  Gotta love those pouty lips and skinny legs.
