Window Redo

September 27, 2009

Today I'm participating in Metamorphosis Monday over at Between Naps on the Porch. Go to her blog to see some great before and after projects! My mom was just out here visiting from California. Whenever she is in town we always manage to come up with fun projects to work on. And, since my mom is creative and extremely handy, I like to take advantage of her skills as much as I am always on the hunt for something for us to do!
One day while we were out shopping I spotted this old window and immediately knew we could make something cute out of it, so I snatched it up for just a few dollars.

Then, we found some adorable mis-matched knobs at Hobby Lobby for half price! My mom is so jealous that she doesn't have a HL by her!

Once we got our supplies we recruited the husband to help us out...since he is handy with the drill and all. He drilled four holes for the knobs....all the while saying "you want to do what with this old window?" It sure helps to have a husband who is a good sport about these things.

Then we (well, my mom and my husband...someone has to take the photos right?) screwed the knobs in.

Not all of them were long enough to reach through to the other side, so they had to get creative by drilling a larger hole in the back so the screw could reach....I know that totally didn't make sense...but it worked!

Then they attached some hooks on the back so we could hang it on the wall!

And there is it! I love how it turned out!

A close up on the mom now wants to do something similar in her house!

It goes great in our downstairs bathroom! Thanks for stopping by!
