Collecting old windows is a favorite activity in our house and our friends have picked up on our style. So much so that a good friend gifted us this beautiful old window as a wedding present (thanks, Jenny!) and said she experienced some serious ‘crafters block’ and decided to leave it as-is so we could do something great with it.
I immediately put it on our entryway table where it’s been since the wedding, serving as a nice backdrop for whatever wreath we want to hang up.
I bought these gorgeous farmhouse hooks several months ago with the plans to hang them in the laundry room. That still has yet to hppen and they’ve been gathering dust in the basement, waiting for their time to shine.
In case you missed it, we’re putting together our first guest bedroom for the One Room Challenge and I knew I wanted to incorporate these hooks into the room, some way, some how.
Cue the wedding window.
I spaced the hooks on the bottom, screwing them in the middle of each window pane.
It still was a little plain for my taste and then I remembered Jenny talking about how, pre-crafters block, she was going to put pictures into each window pane.
Using that as inspiration, I created these fun ‘information’ pictures that guests may want to know – the wifi password, our address and what they can watch on TV… you know, the important stuff 😉
I typed up the information (Oh Wonder Sans font) printed it out and traced it onto brown kraft paper using carbon paper.
Once the text was transferred over, I went over everything with a black paint pen and cut out the text so the paper fit the size of the window pane.
I taped the corners to the back of the window – nothing too fancy, just used regular scotch tape – and cut off any excess kraft paper, if needed.
Now, our guests will not only be able to hang up their scarves, coats or towels, but they’ll also know how to connect to the Wi-Fi and which number to flip on so they don’t miss the latest episode of their favorite show. 🙂
