My mom has a small shed on her farm that is literally filled with old windows from our farm. Some of them were in the barn that was taken down during a straight line wind, some are from our 100-year-old farm house that have been replaced, and who knows where the other ones have come from!
I’ve always wanted to do something with them, so before we moved I made sure to take one with me because I had this idea to make a vinyl family established sign on one of them.
I had to lay out the vinyl and use a level to make sure that I was placing the lettering straight across. I didn’t measure from side to side however. I eyeballed that-so if you are really concerned about that, I recommend a window chalking pen or pencil so you can measure and then lay out your vinyl.
I used the card that L & B Graphics sent with the lettering to secure the vinyl lettering. It was a bit difficult during this part because of how the vinyl was placed on the paper backing. There was a slit in the paper backing in the middle of the lettering so I had to be extra careful while placing it.
I loved the finished product once all the vinyl was placed on the window! It turned out great! I’ve received many compliments on the sign. It was pretty simple to do, and I’m looking at making one I can hang up or place on a table for Christmas! I love that I have a little bit of my family’s history and farm hanging up in our home!
