A lace stenciled window. I found this great idea on Design Inspiration.
This photograph is from an issue of Victoria magazine (no longer published) and uses the border stencil over three-quarters of the window as if it were a lace panel pulled partially down. The border is used both right side up and upside down to fill the desired area. When you have several panes on the window it might be a good idea to experiment with your desired pattern layout onto paper first. The window was stencilled with white acrylic paint which can be removed with solvents if needed. Although acrylic paint is not permanent on glass, it is hardy enough to withstand a light wipe as long as you do not use any harsh cleaning materials on it.
