DIY Vintage Window Pane Photo Frame

Dear Marc:
We restored an old house and replaced all the Victorian pane windows with new energy-efficient windows. I’m left with a stack of antique windows and it would be a shame to get rid of them. Do you know of any projects that use and repurpose vintage windows?

Dear Emily:
I attended a wedding this summer and saw a great DIY project using vintage single pane windows. It was a beautiful reception and designed in a style that could only be described as rustic meets elegance.

After we were greeted at the door we were directed to seating charts framed in a vintage window. As soon as the piece caught my eye, my “design wheels” started spinning. It was a brilliant idea! However, the big question was, “How can I repurpose this idea and use it in the interior of a home?”

That same weekend, I hunted for vintage windows. I found a few at a flea market and came up with this great vintage wall hanging project.

– Single pane vintage window
– Black and white photos
– Double-sided tape
– Wire

Step 1: Print black and white photos in the size of your choice.

Step 2:
Using double-sided tape, adhere the photos to the glass.

Step 3: Attach a piece of wire to the window’s existing hinges and have the wire run along the top of the frame.
