Stickers must be a theme here lately. hmm. if that’s not an interesting theme, I don’t know what is.
oh right…boobs. (that one was for you mom!)
So the window on the side of our house has this very ornate stained glass window.
You can see it from the living room corner. It ain’t my style. If it’s yours, well, you must be fancy nancy.
please excuse the mess…we are still moving in.
And one day I got really close. Almost close enough to clean it. Almost 🙂
While I was thisclose I discovered that I’ve been jipped. This ain’t even real. It’s a darn sticker. A decal that is made to look like stained glass. And then I felt that familiar feeling…the same one I had after seeing Twilight for the first time…and I knew what I wanted to do. And no it didn’t involve a tanning bed and Rob Pattinson.
So I got to peeling. It was applied in layers…so it definitely wasn’t as easy as I thought it might be.
And about thirty minutes of peeling later, I had bits and pieces that I was scraping with a razor blade.
But little did I know but I had just opened a whole box of crickets (which by the way is an awesome dorm prank if you are in college and wanna punk someone….they go everywhere and then sing all night)…underneath all that vinyly plastic was some kind of superhuman adhesive. Clark freaking Kent of glues.
Two bottles of finger nail polish remover later and two weeks later, we have a clean window. It was the only thing in my arsenol that worked. And for those of you wondering, Will was a very funny while high on Acetone.
It’s actually really nice because now I have a view of the sky at sunset from my spot on the couch. And since we have been having those pink nights, it really does put a smile on my face. Although, I thought it might be nice to do something a little less traditional in it’s place. Maybe something like this…
Now comes the hard part…
This beast is at least three times as big. Quick someone do the math – that’s like ten bottles of finger nail polish and six months, right? if I’m lucky!
Although I must say – it’ll be pretty amazing to rid the bathroom of that faux stained window. Like I said – not my style Nancy. I have a plan for that wide open window too. I mean, nobody wants to see Jeremy & I in the tub at night…so we definitely want a little blockage. And here’s a hint of one of my ideas…it involves these old windows I got for free from my mom’s neighbor…
I can’t wait.
Anyone else in sticker shock (aka surprised my stained glass window was a big fat phony!)? Oh just me then…great.
