Window to a Friend (NO LONGER AVAILABLE)

FB_IMG_1471499767079

This is a 2 panel, 24 inch by 18 inch, re-purposed window. The window was stripped down to bare wood, then refinished with one coat of grey, 2 coats of brown, and 2 coats of white acrylic paint. It was then given a distressed finish for a rustic look. The end product was coated with 2 coats of clear acrylic paint for a durable finish. The photo is a high resolution image of Watkins Glen in the Finger Lakes area of New York. The photo was cropped into 2 different photos, one for each pane, to give it an authentic feel of looking out the window at the beautiful Glen. The photos are backed with posterboard, and held in place with glazier points. If you should ever tire of the beautiful photo of the falls, the pictures can easily be removed with a simple flat head screwdriver or putty knife, and replaced with photos of your own, making this a versatile piece of art for anyone’s home. It comes ready to hang, and hangs very nice and flush against the wall giving it the feel of an actual window in place. I made this as a gift for a friend.
