I have wanted some old windows for ever!! I was sick of looking on KSL.com so I made some. I am so excited because I used this awesome technique to age your new wood to look old.
Pour one to two cups white vinegar in a jar and put steel wool in it and close the lid. Let is sit for a day or two and then with a brush or foam bruch paint onto your naked wood (nothing can be on the wood like a varnish or glue ect.) it will make your wood look like it's been laying out in the elements for years..
After letting them dry a few hours I painted a few coats of Valspar white paint. Then I used this bad boy to chip and scrape off the paint to make it look really old and worn. This is the greatest tool under ten dollars it is called the 5 in one painters tool.
other than the spray paint handle, which practically saves my life every time I use spray paint.

What youll need:
* 2x2 wood boards for the outside frame
* 1x 1/2 boards for the panes
* foam roller or brushes( I used roller to get a thick layer of paint)
if you want the chicken wire and a small tack gun
Cut to any size you want and lay them out on the floor use a nail gun or screws to hook together I used both.
wood glue- I used this kind.
add the vinegar steel wool mixture and then the paint. use the 5 in 1 tool to scrape and chip your window, the more chipping the older the window will look.
