Isn't this set-up just great?! I have been loving the trend of using old window frames as decor, and love even more hanging a cute wreath in front of the window. I have seen some of these old frames at antique shops, but they have been priced $30 and beyond. Way too much for me!
I was given an awesome burlap rose wreath a couple weeks ago, and before hanging it, I decided to make my own window frame. It was super easy and quick.
To make a 6-pane, 28x18" frame I used:
12 1/2 feet of 1 1/2" by 3/4" wood boards (Made of the cheapest wood I could find-- .89 a foot)
A sample can a behr paint in the color I wanted (around 2.50)
*** I also used wood glue and clamps I already had
1. Cut the wood into these lengths:
4- 8 1/4"
2. Assemble, with 28" pieces as top and bottom of outside frame, 18" pieces as sides of outside frame, 25" piece as center horizonal divider and 8 1/4" pieces as the vertical dividers. Glue the outer frame together and clamp to hold it. After it is dry, glue inside pieces to frame. Let dry.
3. Paint as desired.
4. I sanded it for a lovely worn, antiqued affect.
Isn't is just beautiful?! I've decided to decorate our bedroom in that deep purple, a dark mossy green, and cream. More wonderful transformations to come!
