Came home from the flea yesterday with 2 things: cupcakes from raspberry bakeshop (the brainchild of Roopa from raspberry eggplant) and a banged up window with intact hinges.
The funny thing is, the window was the impulse buy of the day! I knew that there would be cupcakes at the flea yesterday, and I've been wanting to try Roopa's creations for a while. I've been reading her blog for ages (a year? two?) and love using her recipes. When she started a small specialty cupcake service, I figured it was my duty to check it out. Especially with wedding stuff on the (far far away) horizon!
As for the window, I couldn't resist. Oh, and the guy let me bargain for the price based upon the amount of money I had in my purse and the my need for cupcakes. A very understanding flea seller.
Here's my window:
You can already see the blue tape on the glass because I'm in the process of refinishing and priming the entire piece.
I think I'm then going to paint it a really cheery color.
I think I'm going to wall mount it and call it art.
I'll post more pictures as I get farther along in the process. I'm not entirely sure if this is going to work, so I guess we'll see what happens.
I almost bought 2 huge windows with shutters but realized:
a. too tiny to carry that stuff my byself
b. what would I do with 2 huge windows with shutters?
