When I saw this faux antique glass window tutorial a couple of months ago by Mary Janes and Golashes, I really wanted to try it. I thought the idea was really clever and creative. This one below was my favorite. So beautiful!
I finally got a chance to give it a go. I took a picture of my husband's grandfather to frame. I love that it's a picture of him with his bike, since my husband is very into cycling.
I made another one (as a gift). They look even better in person.
It was easy and quick to do. Peeling away the paper was a little trickier than I thought it would be. I ended up painting the edges in back, just to give it a more antique look. In hindsight, I would have ripped or burned the edges before putting the picture in. I think that would have looked really cool, but I am happy with how it turned out anyhow.
I can't wait to put in some more shelves in our family room so I can display some of the other art I have been working on.
Taylor's tutorial is excellent. If you want to give it a go click HERE. Thanks for stopping in. I have a fun giveaway coming up tomorrow. See you then!
