How To Repurpose A Vintage Window
I am blessed that I live near the beach. Throughout the years I have collected hundred of seashells. I love making projects with them. I thought it be fun to create something unique with an old window frame I have and my seashells.
- Old window
- Turquoise Spray Paint or oil based paint.
- Small white shells
- 4 large seashells
- Glue gun
How To Repurpose A Vintage Window With Seashells.
Step 1: Painting The Window Frame
It was a beautiful day and it was perfect to start preparing the window for painting. Clean off any debris from the window and cover the glass with blue tape. Take white primer paint and cover all the wood.
Once the primer dries you can use any oil-based turquoise paint. If you want to change the color all together be my guest. I hand brushed the paint making it easy to get into the crevices. You can use spray paint as well.
Step 2: Gluing The Seashells
Start by adding the seashells one by one on the cleaned window surface making sure there is just enough space in between each one. Make sure it looks even. At every four corners glue one of the big shells. Once you have positioned all the seashells, get that handy glue gun and start gluing each one carefully. Glue guns are tricky so don’t burn those fingers. Using gloves is wise.
After the seashells dry you can hang it on a wall or against the wall on a table. Let me know if you make one, love to hear about it.
