Vintage Window Frame

I love old window frames. The older and the dirtier the better, as far as window frames are concerned anyway ;-). If you love old window frames and are in search for some I recommend thrift/vintage/second hand stores, flea markets or craigslist. Places like Goodwill or other chain type thrift stores generally do not have old windows. I had this window around for over a year and I have had this picture for probably about 12 years and thought lets bring the two together.
This is a simple project that requires little supplies and little time. You will need a window frame, a picture and some cardboard cut to the size of the window frame.
Here is the view from coming up the stairs.

    It will be wonderful I'm sure! My favorite one I did had 9 panes which I removed and replaced with mirrors from the dollar store. It is one of my favorite pieces!
