Happy Yellow Window Makeover

Y’all might remember the aqua blue chair makeover I shared back in May during “my brilliant friends week.” Well, my brilliant friend Susanna has been at it again!

She had this fabulously worn old window that was ready for reinvention.

A little sanding and caulk removing, and it was ready for some gel stain.

Susanna taped off the windows and donned plastic gloves. [She’s so smart! I would have been walking around with stained brown hands for sure.]

She used General Finishes Gel Stain in “java.”

Remember, wood likes it when you paint with the grain.

05 window makeover staining

Wipe off the excess.

06 window makeover stained

Now it’s ready for paint!

07 window makeover painting

Que the Olympic satin finish paint in “honey pot.” No need for perfect coats–this finish is destined for a little sanding!

08 window makeover sanded

A sanding around the edges and high spots gives it a perfect finish!

And she’s ready to hang!
