The second 'window' didn't have any glass in it, but had great old, chippy paint and worn wood that I loved! It sat in the basement utility room for months. I knew I wanted to do something with it, but wasn't sure quite what that was...
...Until I saw The Vintage Bag Lady's Post about how she used chicken wire on an old window. I knew what my next project would be!
I bought a roll of wire at Home Depot for about $10. I stapled the chicken wire to the frame. (ok, yes, this is a picture of my husband stapling, but really I did most of the stapling, and he is not good about taking pictures of me doing these projects!) :)
There were some sharp edges on the back, so I put some Gorilla tape along the back so the wire wouldn't scratch up the wall.
And here it is up in my office. I'm so happy with it!
When I was hanging the pictures, etc on it, I thought regular clothespins were too big. I found these little ones at Michael's. They worked perfectly!
While I was at it, I added this box that I made. It's a good size to hold all of the 'stuff' that accumulates on my desk.
Thanks so much for visiting!
