Redoing an old window with reverse paint and decoupage is a super fun way to create your own art that feels and looks vintage, because part of it IS vintage!
I found this charming antique, arched top, tall narrow window for $10 on Marketplace! It turned out to be the perfect piece for this reverse paint and decoupage treatment incorporating a vintage coastal print. Most of the products I used for this project are available in my shop, Redo Your Furniture (aka Frame and Frills). Shop online and in person. I’ll put the shopping list for this project at the end of the post.
The decoupage paper I used was a titch short for the window, but I rectified that by doing a reverse paint technique with a stencil to fill in the bottom of the glass where the paper fell short.
Reverse painting and decoupage means you have to do it backwards! I admit this took some concentration on my part… those little color details that I normally would add at the end, I had to start with… tricky! Fun… but tricky!
Here’s the video showing the process, with tips along the way. If I missed anything, feel free to reach out and ask!
By the way, this vintage window paint and decoupage project is in the shop on display. I’d love for you to stop by to see it!
