Old Window Photo Frame

Over at Marty’s Musings, Marty and her husband have completed another awesome rescue.  Lately, they’ve been working on projects that use the old windows frames that he found on the side of the road and brought home.  Marty was pretty sure one of those windows would make a good frame for a family photo.


The first step was finding a family picture that would fit this frame.  Marty found one that would work and had it blown up and printed for cheap as an engineering print.  In the meantime, her husband distressed, repainted, and distressed the window some more.  The final touch was building and painting some faux shutters from old fence boards, to hang on either side of the window.  Doesn’t it look great?

  1. Wonderful job! I am going to try to reproduce a version of this as a gift for my great Aunt. Problem is, I just donated my window frame!!! Thanks for sharing! Jan

    1. How fun! You’ll have to show us how it turns out. And I can relate–my best ideas usually come after I get rid of something. It makes for a very full garage!
