Do you have glass windows that scream for a much-needed facelift? Why don’t you try giving them a makeover by using stains? No, you don’t have to buy stained glass windows – that would be too expensive. Plus, if those windows are still good, why replace them, right?

Well, here’s a great project that could breathe life to those boring windows of yours. It involves faux staining. You don’t have to worry if you’re renting. These faux stains come off easily with soap and water. So what does this mean? If you change your mind and want a new pattern five months later, you’re good.
