A patched together lifestyle of thrift and charm...

Upcycled Window Project...

I had a few 'extra' hours today and decided it was time to hit the 'project' pile.  
(You know what I mean right?)  

Had this old window that I scooped up somewhere for $1 I think.  
It looked awful 'before' - full of dirt and grime - 
and it had only 1 pane of glass.
This is the reverse side - after a good cleaning
I got out the creamy white paint and went to town. 
I kept the 1 pane of glass intact for a picture frame... 

...and backed the other 2 with leftover chicken wire from 
our chicken yard.  As always - 'ya use what ya got'.
(Tools needed were a tin snips, staple gun & hammer.)
 All the rusty hardware is original to the window - 
I simply left it and gave it a coat of matte poly.
 Not bad for a quick afternoon project.
Lots of good ideas and projects at this party - go see!
