Currently I have been working on a HUGE altered idea. I love Vintage/ Shabby found objects. Since my hubby and I flip houses on the side, we get our hands on some pretty cool old wooden windows. He was sweet enough to add a window box to one of these shabby windows. I've been adding my details with paint, stain and beach type embellishment. Its going in the kids bathroom and will have bronze/copper like hardware for towels. I wont show the window yet but I will over the next few days give you a sneak peek at the layouts I have created to go inside them.
