Antique Window Photo Frame

This is a great country chic way to show off your family photos!

  • Old Window Frame
  • Sandpaper
  • Chicken Wire
  • Wire Cutter
  • Staple Gun/Staple Hammer w/staples
  • Hammer and Nails or other hanging Materials
  • Clothes Pins
  • Favorite Family Photos

  1. Prepare your window. Mine was an old screen window from a cabin. I had to remove the old screen from the window before I could start. 
  2. Sand and clean the wood lightly. I left a lot of the original paint and just lightly cleaned it. You may want to add some paint and give it a little distressed look.  
  3. Cut the chicken wire to the size you need with a wire cutter
  4. Staple the chicken wire to the back of the window. Be very careful not to get hurt. Ask someone to help you if you need. 
  5. Make sure there are no wires sticking out that could poke into your wall when you hang it.
  6. Hang your window up vertically or horizontally.  
  7. Add your family photos using clothes pins.
  8. Show off your beautiful family and hard work!
  • Find an old window at a craft/antique shop or online. 
  • Use fun clips for hanging your photos for a little extra personality.
