Here is some Pinterest inspiration:
Then, one day a friend and I went to an antiques store just to browse, and I found this old window pane. The original patina was okay, but a little too rustic and yellow for my room. I also needed to be sure I carefully sanded in a contained garbage bag (in case there was a potential for lead paint – I didn’t have a test kit) and then I repainted, distressed a little, and sealed it for protection.
A close up of the layers of paint underneath the finish I put on it…
I love preserved boxwood, and found this wreath online at Amazon through Flora Decor to fill the window. I am anxiously looking forward to Miss Mustard Seed’s tutorials using preserved boxwood.
The project reminded me of the farmhouse door I helped a friend convert to a command center for her hallway, which was a really cool find.
What is your experience with preserved boxwood? How long does it last, and any tips on making it last longer?
