Make A Headboard Using An Old Window

Make A Headboard Using An Old Window

For ages I have been a collector of rusty, crusty old stuff. Including wonderful doors that I use all over our home. But this huge, heavy old window has eluded my creative self, and lived in our junk pile for ages. What to do with it? One day I noticed that, turned on its side, it was the same horizontal shape as the bead board headboard in our guest bedroom. A quick measure provided that I could paint it the same Fusion Mineral Paint Coal Black color, add a Moroccan-inspired stencil pattern, and mount it on top.

In June this year our daughter Mia and fiancé Paul tied the knot in a gorgeous woodsy setting, followed by a reception in a fabulous barn. This was our first wedding, with so many special moments with family and friends. We waited quite impatiently for the photos – but over 450 gorgeous images arrived weeks later. So worth the wait. It was difficult to chose “the one” but I did it and love this one. I wanted to frame this wedding portrait it in a creative way, using this gilded frame I had made years ago and Fusion Mineral Paint with a Muddaritaville Studio stencil.

There’s nothing easier than painting on the back side of clear glass plates. They can be found at dollar stores and Goodwill, and are surprisingly durable. These are from our daughter Mia’s wedding reception in June and I knew exactly how to re-use them.

I am going to do two different patterns, one on the dinner plate, and another on the salad plate, so that they look amazing layered together. I am painting with Fusion Mineral Paint in my favorite coordinating colors, plus two Muddaritaville Studio stencil designs.

I bought this old church bulletin board ages ago at a favorite antique store. The moment I saw it, I knew it could be for jewelry. Steve added the dowel at the top to hang earrings, and we added cup hooks for my necklaces. I painted a rustic, textured white on the outside, and for this project, I painted Fusion Mineral Paint Homestead Blue on the inside that matches the little cabinet below. This piece is so large I can fit my ever-growing collection no problem. (That may not be a good thing.) When I travel in the US or overseas, a piece of jewelry is my favorite to collect and wear. So many ever-lasting wonderful memories.

Do you love to paint furniture, but always assumed that you could not paint glass – for cabinet doors, full-size doors, table tops, serving trays, dishware, and more? Thanks to my exciting collaboration with Fusion Mineral Paint, we are debuting ten fabulous new tutorials, created just for you! Each one will demonstrate new skills for you to learn, using all water-based products from Fusion, and a few unexpected surprises.

We’re beginning the series with reverse-painted round table glass. I have a cute old round table that is painted Fusion Coal Black, and it needed some bling. I bought a 30″ round piece of glass, pulled together my paint and materials, and wow!
