Using an Old Window to Display Photos

31,988 Views
Use an old window, this one was free, to display photos in your home. I used wedding pictures for mine and hung it our bedroom!
My window used to be stored in an outdoor shed, so it needed a lot of cleaning!
Attach your photos using clear scrapbooking photo corners. Be sure you have everything arranged where you want it before attaching the photos!
This is definitely my favorite piece of art in the whole house. It just makes me smile :)
The easiest way to hang your window on the wall is by attaching D-hooks to the window and using heavy duty Monkey Hooks. This will also keep there from being a large hole if you decide to move it later.

    @Linda D - I just saw your post/question and thought I would tell you that I have seen them on the side of the streets, salvage stores, Goodwill, and you may be able to score some if you see someone replacing windows in their home! Something like Craigslist is also a good source..... have fun!
