Window of Possibilities

Find me on:

window board projectI love houses with lots of windows. Windows with a view are the best, but windows facing a brick wall will also do as long as they let in light. If you happen to have a room with a not-so-pretty view, create your own with a window frame!

I happened to find a frame without glass panes, but one with glass will work too.

I turned the two bottom sections into bulletin boards by covering corrugated cardboard with fabric. You can also use paper and foam core board.

I cut cardboard to fit the 2 openings then attached the fabric to the backing with a glue stick.

Use duct tape to hold the cardboard in place. 

In the top two sections, I stapled floral wire to the back side. Wind the wire around the staple to make sure it stays in place.

Hang postcards, photos or artwork from the wire with clothes pins. You can easily change your display whenever you want.

The ideas for this project are endless. Paint the frame to match your room’s décor. Adding chicken wire to the back allows you to hang lots of items. Or, fill pane sections with cork or paint a piece of foam core with chalkboard paint.
