I know window panes have been used in decorating for quite some time. I need some input on what is the easiest method for painting/distressing one of these. Did you use a paint brush? Spray it? Any advice would be sincerely appreciated. If I plan to use this for pictures in each glass pane how or what does one use to keep them in place? I would want to be able to have them showing from behind the glass and not quite as big as each of the panes (maybe about 2 inches of clear glass showing around each picture?!) looking forward to your helpful ideas that you can share with me!
