Pinterest is such a great site for sharing ideas from food, to crafts, to decorating and much more. I found a great project using an old window as a picture frame. I just had to recreate it.
I searched all over for an old wooden window. I finally found an excellent deal on one at a store called The ReCONNstruction Center, a building materials reuse store, where the profits go towards habitat for humanity. It was probably a little bigger than I needed. I took it home and sanded it (with the help of my hubby). I glazed the window panes since all the old stuff was chipping off. I think I did a pretty good job for my first time. After letting the glaze dry for several days, I painted the frame a cream color.
The hardest part was making sure the picture would fit. I ended up printing two poster sized pictures and piecing them together (cutting off the excess). There was a lot of math involved in the process since I did not want the two posters to come together through a face or between the two children. I aslo had to make sure that both their faces would fit in the center pane.
And....here is the finished product! I get so many compliments on it. People actually notice it!
Happy Pinning and Recreating!
