Wintry Window Photo Display

April, who blogs at House By Hoff, found this old metal window grate hanging up in her parents’ garage last month.  “They really can’t claim that they don’t know where my ‘junk collecting, trash-to-treasure’ gene comes from, can they?” she laughs.

We don’t have a before picture of this one, because April really just left it as it was.  She just used her imagination to figure out another use for this old grate with lovely, arched lines.  April reimagined it as a photo display for her winter mantel.  Using mini clothespins she found in the Target dollar section, she simply pinned a few black and white photos of her daughter enjoying winter’s magic.  Isn’t that lovely?
