This post and color choice for my Vintage Window Hair Bow Holder was inspired by a collaboration with Ace Hardware. All opinions are my own. This post may contain affiliate links.

In early Fall, we have a festival in my hometown called Heritage Days. It’s a great weekend where they shut down the 3 blocks of downtown and local crafters come and sell their amazing art and designs. This year there was an amazing display of craftsmanship and I absolutely fell in love with a couple of upcycled vintage pieces from one particular artist. It seemed like she was quite fantastic at upcycling old windows into decorative pieces and I couldn’t help put bring home this fun Vintage Window, adorned with Chicken Wire. She was displaying it with miniature clothespins to hang pictures and paper artifacts, but I knew it would be the perfect Hair Bow Holder for my girls’ bedroom!

Unfortunately, the vintage window has been stored under a bed for the last few months because I wasn’t quite ready to hang it. We moved into our new-to-us 1920’s home about a year ago, but we hadn’t started painting yet. The girls’ room has been at the top of the list for paint, just because the paint quality in their room is really lacking. We’ve been talking about paint colors and the 4 and 5 year old have been pretty insistent on an Aqua and Pink room. So this past week, I finally headed to Ace Hardware to buy paint and not just keep coming home with more paint chips!

I ended up choosing Turquoise Twist and Flight of Fancy from Ace Hardware’s exclusive Valspar line after comparing the girls’ favorites and with help from my paint mixer at Ace. When I got the cans home and opened them up outside I was blown away by how pretty they were! Sure, they’re super bright and cheery and maybe wouldn’t have been my exact first choice of a bedroom color, but these two colors represent Sophia and Moreaya’s personality perfectly!

Since we have one more DIY project to go before we start painting the girls’ bedroom, I decided to go ahead and give this vintage window a face lift and paint it the beautiful coral pink color that the girls chose for the bottom half of their bedroom. Besides, I couldn’t let that beautiful paint just sit in the garage without seeing how stunning it was going to look!

I thought I loved the Vintage Window Hair Bow Holder before, but after a coat of Flight of Fancy, it’s absolutely beautiful! It makes me so excited to see the finished bedroom once it gets painted! Be sure to follow me on instagram as I’ll be sharing updates when we start the DIY home projects!

Although I can’t claim just how easy this DIY hair bow holder project is, since I bought the window from a lovely artist myself, it looks like a fairly simple project if you have the tools!

Amazon has just about everything you’ll need other than the vintage window. Head to your local flea market or vintage shop to pick one up. Attach the chicken wire to the back of the vintage window once you have all the glass panes removed. You’ll need wire cutters as well as a handy staple gun. I love the 3 hooks attached to the bottom of the vintage window hair bow holder, which will be perfect for holding elastic headbands.
