Stained Glass – Kinda


This is actually a “picture window” I bought from Hobby Lobby, probably 4 years ago.  It was sold as a picture frame – it’s suppose stand on the end (short side) and you could put 5×7 pictures in each pane of glass.  I just haven’t had a place to hang it when the light bulb went on in my head after a mistake I made!  I had purchased this window film from Home Depot: and I had every intention to use it on the upper window of my kitchen window (I have a curtain on the bottom half) – well I cut it wrong!!! I’d always wanted to hang a piece of stained glass just like this but figured the window film would be much cheaper and it had great reviews.  Wellll the scrap I had left over (from cutting it wrong) turned out to be a blessing in disguise!  I remembered I had this “picture window” so I took all the sample photos out of it and cut the scrap window film into 6 pieces!  It really was sooooo easy to do and it looks soooo real!

Here’s a close up pic.

I purchased these hook & eyes – pre-drilled the holes in the “picture window” frame and the frame of my real window.

Turned out pretty darn cute!! And it was cheap!! The window film was $23, picture window was free and the hook 7 eyes were $5!!  I love it when a mistake turns out better than you expected! 😉
