Stenciled Window Advertising Sign

I love it when inspiration strikes and I finally decide what to do with something that's been sitting around for ages. Even though there's a small crack in the upper right corner, I knew this old window with its textured/frosted glass had some potential.

 When Angie (Knick of Time) sent me a couple of her Vintage Sign & Inspirational Stencils to try out, I immediately thought of this window and how it would be a perfect candidate for an advertising sign.

I started by centering and taping the stencil upside down on the back of the window, then I decided to try something a little different.

 Paint pen to the rescue! I had to go over the letters twice because they looked a little streaky the first time around, but it was so easy and the paint stuck like glue!

To fill up more space on the glass, I manipulated the 16" x 8 3/4 version of the Farmhouse Flour Sack stencil by centering the word Flour and filling in the bridges. I replaced the small rolling pin with the large rolling pin from the Mrs. Claus Cookie Co. stencil. I love being able to mix and match!!
No need to adjust your glasses if it looks a little blurry; it's just the textured/frosted glass.

It needed a little something extra, so I added a rusty window pull to each side. Perfect for hanging kitchen accessories or whatever my heart desires.
