I left the hardware the way it was, I love the old rustic look.
I hammered a nail into the frame to tie my ribbon onto.
It turned out so much better than imagined. I have never re-done anything before now and I'm hooked. Tomorrow I will show you a piece of furniture I re-finished and am so excited how it turned out.
Now that I sort of know what I'm doing I can finish the other two windows that my brother gave me, which in a passing conversation I mentioned that I wanted some old windows and if he ever came across any to let me know, he just happened to have a couple. (he loves to collect junk . . one man's junk is another man's treasure! Thanks "Q" - I have a new treasure. I talked to my mom yesterday and she said he has more windows if I want them!!! Wow! The possibilities . . . Now we need to get our basement finished, so I can do more decorating, and have more walls for my new windows. Yeah!
