Feature Friday - Faux Antique Glass

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!
