DIY Window Picture Frame


Do you like the farmhouse style? Then you’ll really like this DIY picture frame.

I was lucky enough to find an old window at our local community thrift store. If you can’t find an old window locally or don’t want to go on a search, here is a great looking window frame I found on Amazon.

After getting the “frame” I picked out some pictures I wanted, used a filter on them to wash out the color a little, then printed them out as 5x7s.

Before placing the pictures I cleaned the window really well, and to place the pictures I used a dab of hot clue to hold them in place. I free handed the “L” with a sharpie (if you use a sharpie and mess up just use an Expo marker to clean it away). After I was done with the “L” and placing the photos I had Wayne hang the window for me like a picture. It was quite heavy so we drilled it into the stud of the wall so it wouldn’t fall.

Since completing this project we’ve added to our family. When we moved over the summer I updated the photos. I didn’t use a filter on these, mainly because I forgot and then didn’t want to take it off the wall again. Here is the updated picture frame.
