Our kitchen was a little lacking in character, and I was a little lost as to what to do with it.
We eventually plan to relocate our kitchen, so we didn’t want to anything too extensive…or expensive.
I found this super cute picture on Pinterest of a similar sink and window to the one I have. This appeared on the blog Vintage News Junkie:
I thought everything about this picture was perfect!
I began by measuring my window opening. I then cut some 1X4’s to size.
I then cut cross pieces and attached them with wood screws. I also filled in obvious cracks with wood filler, sanded, and painted them. I ended up using two coats of paint.
I then added the hardware: hammered iron hinges and handles. I did not make mine exactly like the original picture, because I wanted to make them my own.
We ended up having the flip the hinges around to hang them, and we still need to take down that light fixture.
We still have a little touching up to do, but all in all, I am loving how these turned out. Our blank slate kitchen is starting to get a little personality.
