Any how, a faux stained glass project is what inspired the project. I had some old screens out of my Nanny's shed (her mother). They have been sitting in my garage and I have pondered......what to do with them.

I have thought several times about doing one of these windows to go on my front porch and I thought why not the screen. It would look good out on her patio. Flying by the seat of my pants, not knowing how paint was going to work out a screen, I gave it a shot. I used the Lead Paint tape to do the Large flower, but just free hand painted everything else. The picture does not give this project credit. It is kinda a elementary picture, but you can only do so much on a screen. It is really pretty when held up to the sun. I have different blues across the top for the sky, greens across the bottom for grass and Garden sayings written around the border. I sprayed 4 coats of Polyurethane on it, because I really have no idea how this product holds up outside.
What do you think? Has anyone else done one of these projects?
