Window Shopping

 
A year ago or so I was out shopping and brought home a lovely window.  I stashed it under the guest bed for a later project.  A few weeks ago I finally pulled it out and finished the project. Seriously? It only took about an afternoon.   
What was I waiting for?!
 It was green with silver hardware. 
This picture shows that it has actually been a few colors. 
 It already had a lot of the hardware that I wanted.  Cup hooks and hanging wire. I painted it all creamy white.
 I used the cup hooks to hang my botanical prints. 
 My cousin bought me these gorgeous prints at Nell Hill in Kansas City. 
I wanted them specifically for this arrangement. 
 With the addition of the dragon flies... garden cottage chic! 



 I'm pretty happy with it!

So... 
don't you love it when you 
finally finish a project?

That looks AWESOME!!!

You know I bought 2 matching small french chippy shabby windows that I had magic visions of doing something totally awesome with.....and last summer they were "accidentally" sold at our neighborhood garage sale.

Sadness.

Love your project!

Liz this is SO lovely. It is on my bucket list to visit Nell Hill's someday. I met MCG a few years ago at a design conference and she is so nice.
