The seasons have changed and its time to switch up your home design. For myself, Read more
Gathering the materials for my wood and glass home decor was pretty easy. The main items I needed were some flat boards, an old decorative window panel and some paint to put over the wood. Obtaining the boards and windows were surprisingly less than stressful, I had good connections and I was able to get what I needed in 45 mins. Finding the right colors for my home designproved to be a more elusive, I had to go into three different stores before I could get what was needed.
After i got everything, I put on myprotective gear and I quickly cleared my work table. I began sanding down the boards, then I noticed that one side of the window pane was painted white and even though it was sanded. The grooves remained white and that was problematic for the design I had in mind. So what do we do when faced with a dilemma? I flipped the panel over and used the other side, that was perfect and I just kept going.Next, I cut the boards down to a size that was suitable for my decor.
After I got that first part (sanding and cutting)finished. Istarted on my shutters. Dividing the boards into threes and securing them with the braces. We are now ready for the staining of the window pane and the shutters! We had the sun out that day and I put my classic home design on the lawn to dry and waited. I didn’t touch it until the next day.
After all that,I joyfully put the pieces up above the mantle and further accessorized with a full green wreath and some large white candles. ( early holiday decorating lol) You can dress thisproject up or down depending on what you are celebrating at the moment! It will always be there for you to manipulate.
