Fake a window

On Friday night and Saturday afternoon my Mother and I went to the Junk sister's show. This was our 2nd year going, it's really fun. I picked up several things at the show, I will be sharing in upcoming posts. The one I am sharing with you today is the very old window I picked up at the show for 22 dollars.

The window gives the bathroom the perfect touch of shabby in this very chic room!

When I bought the window it was just a plain old window. I add the vinyl white chandelier. I bought the vinyl chandelier almost a year ago on Etsy I had been debating where to put it, I wanted it to be perfect since they cannot be moved once they are stuck on. What's great about sticking it on this window is I can always move the window. If I had put it on a wall and I ever repainted that wall I wouldn't be able to keep it. I also added this valance to make it seem even more like a real window. I'm debating on adding some lace curtains on the sides I am not sure if I am going to or not yet.
I always wished this bathroom had a window in this exact place, I feel this gives it the feel of a window, the nice part is though no one can see in my bathroom. Plus the vinyl chandelier gives it the luxury look I love. Also since this is not a real window the vinyl chandelier gives you something nice to look at. I think this is a great idea for a room without a window or a basement too. I don't have a basement but if I did I would defiantly be doing more of these.

I love my girly bathroom.

  1. I love this Janae! The window was so chippy and interesting looking and now you have made it adorable! I love how the chandelier on the glass makes it stand away from the wall and look more "real". Now I wish I had done this with the one I have! You are so creative.

  3. Great idea! Our main bathroom in our home (which is an older farm house), is almost in the center of the home, and therefor no windows, which I have always hated! We'll be doing some remodeling, of sorts, in there soon....new gray floor tiles, and paint. We already put wainscotting in there, painted white of course, and I have a frilly white ruffled lace & netting shower curtain too :) I really do like this faux window treatment!

    Looking forward to seeing the other fab things you found, and how you have incorporated them into your beautiful home :)

    Warmest hugs, Brenda

  17. Oh my gosh this reminds me of my guest bathroom. I have a frame on the mirror and a vinyl chandy above the toilet. Go to my tab on House Tour Gallery and look for the guest bathroom to check it out. We have the same ideas.

  38. This is brilliant, Janae! It’s a graceful shabby chic transformation! How come you’re so good at it? :D Did you add the lace you were talking about? It would be better if you pass over that notion. On another note, you do have a real bathroom window, don’t you? It would probably look as gorgeous with the same design as that! -->Tisa

  39. How did you get the window it hold it's place!? And what did you put behind it!? I absolutely love this idea! I have a small bathroom with no windows I would love to do this in!
