Decor Project #1: Old Window

I created this "family tree" large scrapbook page about 3 years ago {I covered up the names, it is really cute with the generations on there}.  It became outdated this year anyway with the addition of another baby, so it was time to move on to another use for the window.

One day as I was driving in an older part of town, I noticed a house was getting new windows and they had the old windows just stacked up on the side.  I just had to stop...  I asked the guy if I could have a couple and he said that was okay because he was going to trash them anyway.  He said that I was the 3rd lady to stop and ask for some.  I told him that they cost about $20 or so dollars at the Flea Market.  I don't think he was happy to hear that he could've been making some sweet cash from the windows he was going to just throw way.  Oh, well I guess sometimes you have to learn the hard way.  I was lucky that day for sure.

 Here is the updated version.  My friend has a vinyl machine and I had her make this large monogram for me {12"x12"}.  The window is 24"x24".  It was kind of tricky because there were several air bubbles that I had to pop with a needle.  But I think it turned out great.  I just have to find the perfect wall for it now.
Stay Warm!
