I have added more pictures, AS YOU CAN SEE :)
|"window of my soul"|
So many of us love the old shutters, and there are a lot of wonderful ideas in the blogging world. I wanted to do something a little different and I also wanted to add photo's of family members to my sewing and computer room. After great thought, this came up!
I will share the items to make this photo or bulletin board, it might just inspire you to do something similar?
2 canvas for painting
By turning over the canvas (I purchased at Super Walmart) it looked
like a window frame to me?
So, I stained the wood trim
and cut the core board to fit inside. First I
covered the core board with a dark blue material with white stars
(from my quilt stash)
and taped to
the back. Added Elmer's Glue and put inside the canvas back.
|The wall decals were from the Dollar Store|
and worked out well, they really stay on to my amazement, I was sure they would
fall off! Can you imagine for a $1.00!
I did rough up the shutters a bit with a hammer and distressed lightly with
vintage green and some of the stain.
There is a lot of possibility to this DIY, at first I wanted the inside window to
give the impression it had 4 window panes, 4 separate canvas, but as I did the project this is how it
worked out due to the height of my shutters.
Finished dimensions are 36 1/2 inches Wide and 36 inches Tall
Now, when I am in my Sewing room, everyone is close by!
This truly is the
"Window of my Soul"
