In the past couple of days I've also had some good opportunities to get some knitting done and I just finished a baby sweater for a friend. All I have to do now is add some little brown buttons! Once I've got those sewn on, I'll post a picture here for you to see!
So the other day when I went to the antique store and found my crate, I also found an old window. The owner gave it to me for three dollars! Along with vintage crates, I've also been keeping a lookout for an old window, so I was so happy when I found this one! And for three dollars!
When I bought it, it was actually painted a dark purple on one side and a bright yellow on the other. Not exactly the look I was going for. So, I got out my paint and mixed a few colours together until I achieved a light grey-blue! I painted one side this colour and the other I painted a green. The same green as my chalkboard, which is 'Saguero' by Martha Stewart. This way, if I feel like changing it up a bit, I can simply flip it around to show the green side! Once my window was all painted and I said goodbye the purple and yellow, I found a lovely spot for it above my couch.
I like having the wreath hanging from the window. Before it just sat on the shelf...
And now it hangs happily from my window!
In other news, I got my new fabric in the mail and I've already got to work sewing some new cushions! I just love it and I can't wait to show you!
