I had the opportunity to post this on Hazel and Ruby's blog before Thanksgiving and it's instantly become one of my favorite projects! So, so easy and with only needing three products and 30 minutes, you can't ask for better!
Yeah, taking a photo on a grey wall is not my specialty. I was really impressed with Krylon's Frosted Finish paint. It doesn't show up right away, maybe 30 seconds later so just keep that in mind. Just spray and then wait and you'll see it start to show up almost instantly. Kind of like a fogged up window. Do you like that Ampersand? I'm guest posting on Sugar Bee Crafts today and you can check it out here on how to make it, I'll also be sharing that with you in a few weeks on my site as well!
I used three Hazel and Ruby stencil masks for this project; Mixed Numbers, Chalk Art Alpha and Broadside Alpha. I placed them on this two-pane vintage window I found at a local scrap yard. If you're in Utah, head on over to George's architectural salvage on 900 South and 500 East. I placed my last name on the first pane with the Broadside Alpha and established in Chalk Art and the year my husband and I were married in Mixed Numbers. I used some Frog Tape to tape off the edges to leave a bit of the clear glass revealed.
I love it paired with my neighbor gift I made using My Minds Eye's Sleigh Bells Ring line. The frame came painted like this and I left it leaving a lot of character. I just had to clean it really well. I used a softer bristle brush to get all the loose dust out of all the crannies and lots of window cleaner.
This project was tricky to photograph cause it had to catch just the right light and that didn't always look the best, but it does add a lot to our main room. It's a piece that can also stay with any season or any decor and I love it. Let me know what you think!
