Beachy Shabby Windows

I found a pair of triangular windows at the Flea Market a while ago and they have been sitting in my workshop ignored.  
I decided it was time to do something with them. 
Before:
The windows were not bad before just a little dirty and boring  I thought.  First I painted the windows with some green chalk paint that I had concocted for another project and then I painted the pair with Jaded Rooster mixed with  Marshmallow Cream chalk paint from  The Urban Rooster.   I wanted the green and some of the white to show in places so I did rub some wax between the paint layers so the distressing was easy.  


A Boxwood wreath always looks good

A Pop of Pink



You can see a little of the green and white layers
