My next makeover started down the street from my house. They are tearing down another house full of character, actually 3 houses, to build one ginormous one. While nothing was salvaged on any of these homes, I did manage to get my hands on a beautiful part of the last one before it was torn down. I noticed they had started the tear down so I called my stepdad to have him do me a little favor… I do this a lot! I asked him to go ask the demo crew if we could have one of the awesome harlequin windows from the front of the house. He told him to take whatever he wanted so he brought me home 2 of the windows… woohoo Bapa… You’re the BOMB! Each window is about 2ft x 6ft and they are solid wood… gorgeous!
So… of course Ashley’s house needed one of these babies! Both of us sanded the paint edge down a bit and then painted the whole window with a coat of cream paint… Mine was Antique Homestead Lace by Valspar and she used Cozy Cottage by Behr .

Now we needed a place to put them…. I decided to hang mine on a tall blank wall next to our recliner in the living room.

Ashley propped hers behind her curly willow in her living room… Aren’t they too cute?! I do find it a shame that nothing was saved from any of these awesome homes but I am so excited that we were able to get a small piece of them. I will be sharing these treasures over on Trash to Treasure at Reinvented…
I will also be adding this to Hooked on Fridays at Hooked on Homes… Check it guys!!
