1. My husband is a talented artist.
2. I can't draw a straight line with a ruler.
I would have never thought of this idea, however, my husband's creation with an old window turned into a great artsy happy space!
He came across some old windows that had seen better days. While I looked at them and thought it was garbage, with a little Gallery Glass he turned it into a pretty fairy scene that decorates our wall! Gallery Glass can be found at Michael's Crafts or other fine art stores.
Gallery Glass is also great on windows if you want to keep your privacy but still let in light, for instance, at a front door with windows on each side. Rather than curtains, use Gallery Glass!
