Sometimes you see something at a Garage Sale or a Thrift Store and instantly fall in love. This was the case for a set of old farmhouse style windows that I saw some time ago. They nearly didn’t come home with me because they were filthy dirty and covered in cobwebs. But if there’s one thing I have learnt over the years is to look past the dirt and cobwebs because underneath it all is a hidden gem. They just need a little TLC.  So today for Farmhouse Hens I’m sharing How To Give An Old Farmhouse Style Window A Fresh New Look.

Supplies needed:

 

Step 1 – Measure our your plywood and cut accordingly to the size of your window using your jigsaw. Give 2 coats of Raw Silk using your brush and letting each coat dry completely. While you are waiting for the paint to dry add once cap of TSP to some warm water and give your window a good clean down. You’ll be surprised how much yuck comes off your window and how nice and sparkly clean. All the heart eyes for TSP!!

Step 2 – Pop out some ink onto an old tile or something flat and non-porous.  You don’t need much because the ink goes a long way. Grab your brayer and run through your ink in opposite directions until the brayer is covered in ink. Peel off your Craquelure Stamp and lightly rough up with sandpaper if you are using the stamp for the first time because this allows the ink to adhere better to a new stamp. Start rolling your brayer all over the stamp.

Step 3 –  Flip over your stamp and carefully place on your backing board. Using your fingertips lightly run over the stamp being careful not to move the stamp because otherwise, it will smudge. You only want the crackled effect to appear in some spots to give it a nice aged effect.

Stamping Time

Step 4 –  Move the stamp across your backing board slightly overlapping as you go until completely covered. Let the ink completely dry because you don’t want the ink to smudge. Then give the backing board a light sand with your sandpaper

 

 

Step 5 – Using your air compressor secure the backing to the back of your window.

Step 6 – Once you are happy with your design lay down the transfer film and run your fingers over the stamps to adhere them to the film. Flip it over and apply some ink to your design.

  1. Sam this is boutique beautiful, and a totally new technique for me. It’s a stunning project and really well executed. I hadn’t thought of stamping for anything but paper and that isn’t for me. Thank you very much for the tutorial and the inspiration.
