Pinterest Sunday (and Monday, and Tuesday,Whew!)-Tiff's Wedding Gift

This Pinterest Sunday I bring you another window...
{At least it is not another cupcake, ha!}
My coworker, Tiff, got married in Utah last month. She is just 19 and the cutest girl ever! She is having a reception here as well, so I wanted to make her something special. Her reception will be an outdoor, rustic theme and I think one of my old farmhouse windows will be perfect.
Here they are in all their pre decorated glory:
 A little background, Tony and I saw them behind a hardware store in New Castle, OK while visiting Tony's sister. The store was closed because it was Sunday, so we got them when we went back a few months later. Tony's sister must have thought I was crazy when she saw 10 old dirty windows in the back of the truck!
 They take some scraping to get the old paint off. I would like to leave some like this, this one had a nice turquoise color underneath all the other layers, but it did not match Tiff's colors of cinnamon brown, peach/ivory, and blush pink.
 After scraping some more, I painted the window frame the cinnamon brown color. 

It took me a while to find a font I liked that I printed to follow as a template for hand painting the song lyrics. I chose "Amazed" by Lonestar and it reads:
"I want to spend the rest of my life with you by my side, Forever and Ever".

 A little dry brushing so it does not look too neat.

And some finishing touches, photos from their wedding, little antique jars, and fresh flowers I matched to the bouquet in the photos:

I hope the bride and groom like it!
