Window becomes Frame

Yesterday I was featured over at Remodeloholic. They were thrilled with my foyer and I was thrilled to share! A project was shown that I haven’t shared with you….here is a tutorial about the window that I used as a frame…

I found this old window frame (at peddlers market)…no mullions (or liney thingys..) and it was $10! Love that!

I decided to turn it into a picture frame for the foyer….

I lightly and carefully nailed on some picture hangers….

I had 6 pictures printed in black and white…and I got out a handy dandy glue roller…

I used a small strip of glue on the top and bottom of the pictures–I like the option of switching out pictures when I want to….

Love this! This old window is about 38 by 36….I love the old chippy paint and the hinge still on the side…

I chose to do “then and now” pics of our kids….at age 5 and now age 11….so sweet to look back :)

    What a wonderful way to display their photos.

    My neighbors tossed out six windows a couple of weeks ago for the trashman. Of course, the windows are now in my garage.

  4. Great way to use an old window!
    I have a couple old windows flanking my fireplace for architectural interest; some house guests last week were telling me I should put posters of outdoors scenes behind them to simulate a "view". Uh, no.

    I love your choice of photos and the theme. Adorable. I especially like the simplicity of the black and white photos. Nice deal on the window!
