I am having so much fun decorating our spare bedroom, and I have been trying to figure out what I wanted for a head board. Pinterest saved the day when I saw this lovely idea:

Now I had to find a window so I could recreate this lovely idea. Here is my version of the fabric framed window:
- Industrial Staple Gun
- Picture hangers
I found this lovely green window pane a few weeks ago at a thrift store, and I couldn't wait to find the perfect fabric to frame it in. Luckily I have the best mom who has an amazing collection of fabric that she is always willing to share with me. Basically I went "shopping" in my mom's craft room.
First I removed the mirror (which I not a fan of anyways) and the chain that was on the frame to help it hang vertically.
Next I got my awesome staple gun that my dad gave to me. It works so well, and is so easy to use.
I laid my fabric over my frame so I could trim off the excess fabric
I took my fabric scissors and trimmed off all excess fabric leaving enough to staple to the window frame
Then I began to staple around the whole perimeter of the frame, and down the panes.
I needed Mr Joyful Thrifter's assistance to put these hangers on because I could not get that screw in to save my life.
The next step is the best: STEP BACK AND ADMIRE!
I think it came out so cute.
Tomorrow I will show you part two where I will add cute details to my frame.
