Dreamy White Window!
Hello! Thank you for stopping by!
I am joining http://fadedcharmcottage.blogspot.com/ for White Wednesday!
I have a sweet little spot at the end of my hallway ( with gappy door at the end) that I have needed to fill.
There is quite a little stockpile in my garage of shabby windows. I decided to use a nice paneless window at the end of my hallway atop a very chippy handmade bench...
BEFORE~Lonely Hallway~

AFTER~A dreamy white sheer curtain added with an old white window underneath.
I thought the black chippy bench would accent the white well. I added the bunny weather vane
to tie in the black and white.

The sweet white bunny weather vane I found with BADLY broken ears for $1with its ears tied to its tail and a note attached saying...Needs TLC.

I used ALOT of the E 6000 glue and wrapped a tiara of flowers around her poor ears. After the repair there was still a nasty crack that could not be painted....hence the flowers~

I would love to add something underneath the bench like a shabby painted suitcase or something of that nature!
I added these sweet white shabby pillows to comfy up the bench. Notice the pretty shabby knob I used on the closet door at the end of the hallway. So pretty. 
I found these pretty lace panels at a garage sale for $1, funny thing my friend and I both went to the same sale at different times and each picked up one piece of this panel. Tee Hee. I was so excited to find out she had the other side and she offered to let me keep it! SWEET FRIEND!
I love the dreamy romantic feel of the sheer and lace over the shabby vintage window!


Thank you sweet friends for stopping my dreamy White Wednesdy, remember see more White Wednesday at http://fadedcharmcottage.blogspot.com/
Have a Lovely and oh so blessed day!
Hugs,
Olivia

  8. An amazing transformation. Great job! You would have to do a double take to realize there isn't a real window there.

    Happy White Wednesday

IT WAS SUCH A SPECIAL TIME...SHE LOVED CELEBRATIONS AND I JUST BELIEVE SHE HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH THIS. IT MAKES ME CRY WITH JOY. I CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH.
    ON YOUR GLUED ON RABBIT EARS.....MY SON WAS RAISED WITH A SOCCER BALL AND I HAD TO GLUE MANY RABBIT EARS BACK ON, MANY ANGEL WINGS,SOME JUST DISAPPEARED AND NO ONE KNEW WHERE THEY WENT.....I TOLD HIM WHEN HE HAD CHILDREN HE BETTER NOT GET ON TO HIS CHILDREN FOR BREAKING A THING...LOL...AND TO BUY LOTS OF GLUE.
    I CAUGHT UP ON THE POSTS I MISSED AND BOY HAVE I MISSED A LOT.
    I LOVE ALL YOUR WOODEN CHAIRS AND ESPECIALLY THE IRON ONES AT THE FOOT OF YOUR BED.
    YOUR BEDROOM IS STILL ROMANTIC EVEN THOUGH THERE IS NOT PINK.
    I LOVE YOUR 1.00 MADONNA WITH CHILD PICTURE.
    I WILL GET AN E MAIL OFF TO YOU.
    THANK YOU MY FRIEND.
    I WILL TREASURE THIS TEAPOT FOREVER AND WILL THINK OF YOU EVERYTIME I LOOK AT IT.
    HUGS AND BLESSINGS
    SIMPLY DEBBIE

  16. Olivia,
    I Love what you did with the paneless window! The curtains are wonderfully lacy! And the bench with the bunny weather vane is so cute and I do adore how you rescued that sweet bunny weather vane!
    What a beautiful job! Even a beautiful rose tray would look nice under the bench with a hat box next to it........
