Trash To Treasure! Kids Artwork Display!

  On our vacation to Maine a few years ago we got to visit my grandmother's old home. I had many great memories of this home and cried as soon as I stepped foot in it. A nice man happen to be remodeling it and to make a long story short, he gave us 5 or 6 old windows from it. I used one already and posted about that here.
But this one I decided to make into something that could house special drawings that the kids make each week. It not only makes the kids feel special to see their art work up on the wall but it's decorative too.

All I did was put a nice fresh coat of white paint on it. Then I took some light green and just randomly brushed it on, gave it a light sanding and then painted "The Family is one of God's Masterpieces" in a bright orange and had my handy hubby hang it for me on a wall that all will see.
It wasn't hard at all and the kids love seeing their artwork on display.

What do you think?
Have a fabulous day my friends.
