I painted the window black (after a terribly ugly attempt at distressed green. It was horrid and I refuse to re-post it, so if you want to see it you will have to go to the link to the original post above!).
I love the way the black looked. That is the best part about a painted project. If you hate it you can always re-paint it!
I left the original hardware on top of the window and at the bottom I added some decorative hooks to hang mementos or holiday decorations from. When we move, if I decide to hang it in the entry or mudroom we could hang coats and umbrellas from it. The options are endless!
For this house I decided to hang it in the staircase that has been getting a makeover.
I am really loving it! It is my new favorite up-cycled project at the moment!
It holds adorable pictures of my little man from his 10 month photo shoot right after we finally got home from Africa.
Such a stinkin' cute little baby and I love the original way to display his precious photos!
