Window Wall

You know that feeling when you check off items on a list? That giddy, elated feeling that one more thing is done? It’s wonderful isn’t it? 🙂 That’s how I’m feeling lately. We have been going gangbusters working on projects these past few weeks and the house is coming together more and more each day. One project that we just finished was adding windows and a frame to our kitchen wall. It’s a huge floor-to-ceiling wall and needed something quite big to fill the space.  I took some old windows, wood from up north, and a photo to create a wonderful display 🙂

These windows came from an over 100-year-old house on my dad’s property. They’ve been sitting in my childhood playhouse until my dad mentioned that I should take them home. They are absolutely beautiful but needed to be cleaned up a bit.

I washed them up, put a coat of Kilz primer on and then painted them with DecoArt Yesteryear paint. My husband and father-in-law built me a frame; I printed a photo of the view out of the living room window in Panama, and bought a piece of glass. I painted the frame in the same paint and then they were ready to hang!

The old windows weigh over 25 pounds each so my husband reinforced the back of the windows to make sure they wouldn’t come apart and then we mounted them to the wall using a small bracket. One part is screwed directly into the wall and the other into the bottom and top of the window itself.

These babies aren’t going anywhere. I wanted it to look like the windows were floating on the wall. Mission accomplished! It took a lot of measuring and even after we got it all hung the hubby still had to make some adjustments.

I’m so happy with how it turned out. I envisioned that when we are standing in our kitchen, it would be like we were looking out onto the ocean just like if we were in Panama.
