DIY Recycled Window Picture Frame
I just wanted to share this great picture frame idea with everyone! My fiancé used to be a firefighter, and he found a bunch of old windows in a barn that they were preparing to burn down. They just sat in our shed for a year until we made an awesome picture frame out of one. I am so happy with how it turned out, and it was completely free! Although we did not have to purchase ours, they are pretty easy to find in local antique stores, garage sales, and scrap yards. Just keep looking and something will turn up!
Ours had all of the glass still intact, but if you find one that doesn’t have glass, you can always add chicken wire behind it or some sort of decorative paper with smaller pictures.
I love this one from Hollie Day:
The possibilities are truly endless, and I just love thinking about how that window was in someone’s home for so many years. Think about all of the moments it witnessed… all of the Holidays, laughs, and special times in a home that was probably someone’s pride and joy so long ago. Window panes are definitely much more special than a store-bought frame.
I hope you enjoyed the post and you are now inspired to make a one-of-a-kind frame and conversation piece to put in your home!
