From Vintage to Modern

During Christmastime last year, Home Depot aired a commercial about redoing an old window frame into a Christmas decoration.

 I loved the project from the first time I saw the commercial and I really wanted to do it last year. I had one problem, though. I had no idea where to get an old window.

Fast forward to yesterday. I was looking through Craigslist for an old, vintage church pew (for our front porch) and came across a listing for a store in Tulsa called Home Accents From Vintage to Modern that had old windows. Um, yes please. I called the store and they are only open Thursday through Saturday, but the lady was supposed to be doing some work in the store today so she was so kind as to set up an appointment with me so I could come by and look at her windows.

And I found a window! I know it doesn't look like much and that it isn't exactly like the one in the commercial, but it was priced right at $5.00 and I think it will work.
I am really looking forward to this project!

Hmmm, that sounds like a very fun place. Are you going back anytime soon?
