Window Framed Family Portrait

Maryann of Domestically Speaking tells us, “My brother works in construction and lately has been replacing lots of windows… yeah for me!”  She had recently pinned a tutorial on printing large scale photos inexpensively, and while looking at her pile of frames thought, “Why not combine a window frame with a large print?”

Always something window before

I like the way Maryann thinks.  Her project turned out beautifully, with her family portrait framed by a vintage window.  Can you believe that this project cost less than $5?  It’s definitely the boutique look for way less than boutique prices.

Window Picture Frame

Lindsay from Diary of a Crafty Lady picked up this great old window from the side of the road. It was in excellent condition, by far the best of Lindsay’s collection of old windows.

Lindsay had seen windows turned into frames with multiple small pictures inside but it wasn’t exactly what she wanted. Instead she filled the window with one big picture that she measured and cut to fit in the panels. This makes such an awesome frame. I love that it’s a little different and cost Lindsay only a little over two dollars to make!
