You can't manufacture age.  
So we are thrilled when we find wood that is genuinely aged and has a wonderful true, shabby color we can embrace.  
That was the case with these two windows.  I  had to touch up the paint a little and seal it all with a clear finish but the original colors were the inspiration.

I started with the pink one because I immediately fell in love with the color and knew it had to be designed for a girl's room.  After much debate and thought, I pieced together a couple of our wall graphics to create this Sugar and Spice design in our brown matte vinyl complimenting the brown wood showing through.  Then I added a brown handle to complete the look.  CUTE!!
So cute, in fact, that I decided to do another one in this mint colored window.  
(Again, the original paint color).  
This time I added some brown and mint buttons at the bottom as my finishing accents.  
Sweet and Fun!!

Feelin' the LOVE

Just in time for Valentine's Day!
This creation once again resulted from a little love on our part -- love for this rusty hinge that I simply could not remove.  When my husband cut the door, he had to cut around it.  It left this little lonesome piece of wood attached to the rusty hinge and I simply could not throw it out.  So...with some vintage typewriter keys fitting perfectly in the holes and some other funky metal pieces and buttons this sweet piece developed.
Sweet, one-of-a-kind, and sending its love!
