“…all things are passed away; behold, all things have become new.” 2 Cor 5:17

I realize this bible verse isn’t talking about my grandparents’ windowpanes but it does come to mind when I am re-fashioning old items into new again.

I enjoy decorating my home with meaningful pieces that have a personal history.

My mother lives on the home place where she was born and raised and I found these these old windows in her shed a few years ago.

Thanks to Pinterest inspiration, I now proudly display three of them in my home.

My girlfriends and I recently celebrated our tenth year of visiting the wonderful island Grand Cayman.

I ordered the print from Etsy and had it framed at Hobby Lobby.  Cost was $35 for print and less than $10 for framing. Bed furnishings are Trina Turk.

The print is perfect for my beach guest bedroom!

I love how this one turned out!  Boaz Glass did a wonderful job placing a mirror behind the panes. I don’t remember the exact cost, but not more than $25.

As you can see, it hangs on the opposite wall from the Cayman print.

I turned this one sideways and added a wreath.  This bedroom is gold and white so simplicity works above this bed.

I scuffed up the first two with sandpaper but didn’t wanted the third to look distressed.

If you want to add a coat of paint but still keep the distressed look, just dab a little Vaseline on random spots.  The paint will not adhere to the Vaseline and it will leave a nice “worn” look.

My cute little pouf was from Forever21 but is no longer available. It’s under the windowpane mirror in the beach bedroom. Other stool options at Overstock.com.

What in your home has been “made new again”?

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things have become new.”       2 Corinthinians 5:17
