This one has a bead board background that I have painted red. I got cardboard chunky letters from Joann's and spray painted them with a textured spray paint. I got a wreath for the "O". To make this window like a shadow box to fit the letters in between the glass and the bead board, I put strips of 1x2 wood on the back of the window frame and then nailed the bead board to that.
This next one I also use bead board painted a soft yellow. I used faux cherry blossom branches with a bird nest in the middle. this is one of my favorites!
This one is special because I used a picture of both of my grandfathers. The one of my paternal grandfather who was the farmer was when we went to Washington for a family reunion. We were on the Puget Sound and went sailing. He took the wheel and was as happy as could be. The picture of my maternal grandfather whom I have never met because he passed away before I was born, was in front of one of his "luggers" from the pearling industry that he owned in Broome, Australia. I used these pictures in my bathroom that I have a beachy theme. I just hung the window on the wall, no glass, just decorated it with fish net, SEA letters and sea shells.
This window was fun to do because I love old knobs. I picked up this knob at Hobby Lobby and it made the window look more like an old door than a window. I put fabric behind the glass.
This one I took a picture of my kids with the actual window in sepia and placed the picture between 2 pieces of glass. (Had another child after this so she is left out)
These are some of my favorite things in my home. I think your home should have what you love and not necessarily what the latest style is.
