You & Me Looking Glass Window

From Doors to Windows….

So if you follow me on Instagram you saw that my husband was so very sweet and brought me home not flowers but something far better- windows. He went dumpster diving for me! It didn’t take long for me to decide one of the windows was going in our Master bedroom.

I have always wanted a put together- let’s escape to our- Master bedroom, you know all decorated perfectly etc. Well our bedroom is far from that, it’s a total hodge podge. We don’t even have a headboard anymore, mis-matched night stands an extra couch and recliner stored in there. Total hodge podge desperately needing work!  I think this You & Me window will get me started on putting some order and getting our room looking good.

The window is obviously old and dirty-the old I like and the dirty well I just cleaned it up. I took a scraper and scraped off just the paint that was already flaking off because I wasn’t going for a total distressed look here. After I scraped and cleaned I taped off the painted wood so I could paint the windows…..NOT with chalkboard paint this time.  Aren’t you Instagram followers lucky- you knew that I was trying out Krylon Looking Glass spray.

Let me just complain about the weather- everytime I had time to work it was either raining or too windy to spray this outside. Finally we got a break and I ran the window outside and sprayed. It takes lots of coats but they go on quick and easy, I only had to wait 2 minutes between coats (The time it took to take a sneak peek and post it to Instagram). This spray paint is very smelly so it was a good thing I found a chance to take it outside to spray, so please if you use this product do it in a well ventilated area. Since I was spraying windows I could place something dark behind the glass to see if I had enough coverage or look at the back of the glass through the front.

I let the paint set overnight before I removed the painters tape. Look happened!!! I was almost in tears but just keeping working with it to see how far off it was from my vision if I continued on as planned.

Using my Cricut and the “Storybook” cartridge I cut “YOU & ME” in black vinyl.  Then applied the letters to the painted panes. Looking at the picture I can see that the letters aren’t perfectly lined up. The vinyl was peeling the looking glass paint off so I didn’t have a chance to adjust them.

repurposed window for Master bedroom

I added some hardware to the back of the window to hang it. Here it is above our bed.

Well, it’s a start to a dreamy Master Bedroom. Have you repurposed a window?

Thanks for stopping by At Home with Sweet T!!!
