Botanical Window Frame

After sharing my Drab to Fab: Dresser project a few weeks back, I had some questions about how I put together the botanical piece above it! Well, I have always loved botanical prints! I think they hold a simple vintage elegance but if they are not hard to come by, many times they are expensive. Or if the prints are not expensive the framing of them sure can get expensive!

   SO! I hopped on to good ole Google and went searching and came across this lovely little website called The Graphics Fairy ! The website has thousands of beautiful vintage graphics. Anything your little heart desires! That is where I got my botanical prints, for FREE! And to save you the time here is a link to each print I used...

After printing these off with my printer. I grabbed my 8 pane window and spray adhesive. After wiping the window down, I flipped it wrong side up. Lightly sprayed one pane and applied my first print. Be very careful about placement, that the print is facing down and if your panes are slightly larger than the print, that you place each one evenly across. Repeat this process for each print, lift and enjoy! It really was all that was to it! Simple & Quick!

So this just happened...

I have been itching with the cooler winter weather to start inside projects, knowing my husband would even cringe at the idea of another crazy project, I took it upon myself to....start another one! hahaha

This is our guest bathroom when we moved in a year ago...

Right after we moved in, I took it upon myself to remove the glass shower door. It was not only awful to clean but with the toilet placement it made it very difficult to wrangle a 3 year old in the bath and the doors! lol It was a fast and painless removal. Couple screws and a little goo off, I peeled all the gunk off and that has served us much better since. But now I'm really ready to make this space reflect "me" more.

SO I took this nasty bad boy down....

This medicine cabinet/ light fixture had seen many better days and it immediately made the room feel SO much bigger. Taking it down already has the hubs understanding how this project is such a great idea! ;) And giving us both the push and constant reminder...each time we stare at our blank spot on the wall there to get on it!

Now to start the planning....time to get a board started...

Here is how it sits today....

Don't ya love the toilet paper roll holder....hahaha There are toddlers in the house! *wink*

Oh wait....cute bubble baby...hehehe
