Ladder Pot Rack

Made this to go with my vintage window frame art previously posted, since they are in the relative same area of the house. Found the old ladder in someone's roadside garbage (love old wood ladders, they can be used for so many things)...cleaned it, painted it, distressed it and then dh hung it up for me over our counter in the it...and love the extra cupboard space I have!

Vintage Window Makeover

Ok, I am in love with the old vintage wood style windows. We have several around the house, 1 is a headboard, the others hang in our skylight with stained glass in them...and today, I did my very own project (usually dh does them) I am so excited to share this with you...these are two separate windows, although we hung them side by side...I searched the net for some distressing tips and found this site, check it out, she explains everything clearly and it is very easy to do. Dh took the wire brush to the windows first to clean them up and remove any loose paint. I started with brown paint for the base, and then used the candle, and then dark teal on top...sanded them and voila...they turned out awesome! I filled the panes with some scrapbook paper and cut out a few words and dh hung it up in the dining excited to share
