New life for an old window

This is a little something I made my Mom for Christmas, which I can post now that she's opened it :) I had this window and it used to have dried flowers behind each pane, a little too country for my taste.

So I took it apart and cleaned it.

 I took my 40% off coupon to Hobby Lobby and bought this little can of Looking Glass Mirror-Like spray paint {it's like 12 bucks and the can is not that big, this project took the whole thing}


After spraying it down I took a rag and wiped off random areas, then flecked it with black craft paint.


I mod podged some cute paper on the same side I spray painted and I did a different one on each pane.

The next pics are not the greatest because I had to use my phone :)  My Mom added some photos of Madi to it because she likes to stare at her grandbaby as often as possible, ha!
















I really wanted to keep it for myself, but my Mom works a lot so she doesn't get enough time to craft, so I thought I'd be nice :) That's why I'm her favorite {sorry Daniel, Ben, and Katie!} Plus she's like really awesome :)


Check out the other old window I did!

Now, I don't know what the deal is, but Miss M just keeps banging her face up! {Sheesh} I'm not going to be able to take her out in public if she keeps this up :)






Plus she's sporting 'toddler hair', you know it's all crazy and different lengths. Are you supposed to cut and even it out or just let her look crazy until it's a good length??  I guess it doesn't help that she sticks her hands in the dogs water bowl and rubs it all over her head. Why? Why? Why? I guess I'm glad she stopped doing that with food {most of the time}.

  1. Beautiful window for your mom. Too cute.

    My aunt is a hairdresser and usually cuts little ones hair when the mom is ready, HA!!. I know that once you have a first trim to even the hair out then the hair will grow. Both thicker and in length.
