Chippy Blue Window Project


Here is the cute chip-y blue window I bought at the Salvage yard.
I love this little guy.  He's just the perfect color and size!
No touch-up or work needed! :)
Here's what I did with it.


Remember my Jen inspired cupcake wrapper wreath?

Well... I thought it would be cute to frame it some how!
First I marked a spot where I wanted my crystal knob to go.

I put a short little nail there



Then dabbed a little hot glue inside the hole of the nob and around the bottom, and then put it over the nail.
Mostly so I could remember where the middle was, and so it had a little bit more reinforcement. 



Then, I just hung the window on the wall, using another small nail... so it could rest on it...


and DONE!
So easy!  And cute!


It's kind of a tight squeeze, but I think it just finishes off that dead space that was there at the end of the beds.
And it adds that cute pop of blue! :)
I LOVE it!
$5 bucks, well spent!

  1. Ok Miss Shelley. My question is where did you find the bright pink cupcake wrappers? Or maybe even a pale pink. I have looked and the only place I found the pale pink was at party city and it is in a pack with a whole bunch of other colors. I have yet to find bright pink. I was on the hunt during February when bright pink should be everywhere. Hmmmm what's a girl to do?

    By the way I am excited to see your Mom next week. We will be in AZ when she is there. I just love my Aunt Kim.

  9. Loving this! I just made one of these wreaths out of coffee filters. It wasn't coming together how I imagined it. I was using a black frame. I'm going to try this lighter color and I love the pink flower. Thanks for the inspiration!!!

  15. It looks adorable and I love how easy it was. But tell the truth, does your hot glue gun give you fits?!?!? Mine does. Is there a secret no one is telling me? Do I have the wrong brand? Please advise.
