DIY Rustic Picture Frame

Recently we just changed all the windows in our house, there were old one pane wood windows original to the house when it’s built. I actually like those old windows, though they look old and outdated but they were full of characters. Considering how much energy wasted if we keep using them, we decided to changed it, and our power bill went down right away the next month after installation.

I kept one window, picked the best looking one, and use it as picture frame. Instead of refinished it I used it as it was after cleaned it thoroughly. I like how its scratch, old paint, chips, dents, holes tells the story of it existence. Thank you for being the window for this house for 24 years and I’m grateful how it now serves its new role as Rustic Family Picture Frame.

I printed the photos in black and white 6x8inch, I think this is the best in this project… Sepia will do well too.

Make a mat to get a center and uniform position, so you don’t have to measure the frames one by one.
