Shabby To Cottage Chic

So my husband recently took out some garage windows and I decided to do a little craft project. All I did was clean them up and sand them down , that's it. Then I just attached some fun beachy pics and wired a hanger on the back. So simple and I love how it turned out! I just love giving something old new life. So next time you are thinking about getting rid of something consider recycling it into a fun craft project. I think it looks kind of cottagey, looks weathered and worn .
And the turquoise star was something I found at this awesome antique place called Green Oak Antiques . I just painted my favorite color Turquoise. Think it looks cute hanging in the flower garden. The Black eyed susans are in full bloom and are as happy as can be!

So go take a peek around your house and see what you can recycle into something new. I bet you will be surprised at what you find. Hope you have a good rest of the week. It's gonna be a hot one here today in the midwest 90 degrees. I love S*U*M*M*E*R bring on the sunshine! Have a happy day today !!!
