A $5 old window, craft paint, a foam roller, jute, eye screws, black wood screws, old enamelware pans, and of course a stencil from Funky Junk Interiors/Old Sign Stencils are the materials needed to complete this project.
Here is my inspiration! A window "LUNCH" sign by my friend Funky Junk Donna. Instructions for stenciling on glass HERE from the Funky Junk Interiors blog.

This project would have been much easier with a slightly bigger window. The stencil was a little too big and I had to press it down flat at times with any extra fingers! I used a small foam roller and Folkart Multi-surface Craft Paint in Licorice. I did about three coats. I like the multi-surface paint for glass as it is pretty durable after it cures. The roller method on glass works pretty easily if the stencil can be taped down flat to the window (or picture frame glass too).
I screwed two eye screws to the top of the window frame and hung my window sign with jute, just like Donna did. I put three black wood screws into the bottom of the frame to hang my enamelware kettles. I hung my new sign in the kitchen on the door to my laundry room.
I love my project, er, I mean Donna's project!
