I recently purchased several old windows. I decided to upcycle one of them for my kitchen.

I started out with an old 6 pane window, some good music, & sweet tea. :-) Removed all the glass panes, and scraped it down.

I painted it black & distressed it. Cut plywood panels to fit the window, covered them with burlap, chicken wire, cork, and painted 2 with chalkboard paint.

I loved the way it turned out, but I needed some decorations. The hubs helped me cut out an M from a 1 x 8. I painted it teal & red and did lots of distressing. I made a summery paper flower garland & small flowers for my pushpins.

    Thank you Sharon. We hung it in the kitchen and use it for lists, notes, and photos. :-)
