My Thift Store Challenge

3 Materials
1 Day

I turned an old pane window into a wall decor.

So I found this at a thrift store, I love doing old pain windows!

Here are the materials I’m going to use, it’s going in my bedroom, ( I love rustic) so I think I’ll just leave it how it looks

So I did sand it down a little to get rid of any loose paint,

 needed to cut out brackets for the top shelf, and I also measured and cut a piece for the shelf.

Next on the window I removed any pieces of broken glass from the bottom part of window.

Once all my pieces were cut, I began putting my window together,
I glued and nailed the brackets, let that dry, once dried, I added the shelf, glued and nailed also, let that dry.

I then added the inserts of where the glass use to be.  Then I added some old spoons I had on each side of the window as hooks, ( couldn’t decide what kind of hooks I wanted, so I just used old spoons.
