Who doesn’t like free? Jolene and I are excited to kick off this new series called Free Finds Fridays! Every Friday, we will post one of our favorite free finds and show you how to turn them into something spectacular. Are you all on Instagram? If not, you should be. Such a fun community of ladies getting “together” and sharing ideas, pictures, and hashtags on how to create comfy cozy homes. We are in a group with eight other fantastic ladies that feature our favorite #FreeFindsFridays. You will be amazed at the goodies that we see. So head over to Instagram and follow us.
My favorite Free Finds are by far my old windows. We have found a bunch on the side of the road when old barns are being torn down. The very first thing I did to my first window was chalk paint the panes to make a great weekly calendar for our kitchen. Tip of the day: Make sure you let your layers of chalk board paint dry completely before you season your window. I think I rushed mine and it doesn’t erase well.
This Christmas I changed my mantle up a little bit. My sweet friend, Heidi, rescued an awesome green window and I knew that had to be the focal point. Jolene found this awesome chippy green mirror that I am borrowing and it completed the look! How fun is free?
Finally, attach a piece of fabric to the back of the window to create a new look. These windows are perfect for filling space on a large wall.
What are your favorite Free Finds this Friday? We would love to hear from you!
