So… again my wife found this window pane at the Habitat for Humanity Restore. $5. That place is pretty legit. Many a good find there.
We knew we had to do something awesome with this frame but as it sat in the Hilliard home for about a month we were stumped. Thank the Lord for pinterest. Rach got some pinspiration and we were off. Team Hilliard was in motion.
We had hundreds of great wedding pics but had yet to use them much. So, we splurged and hit a 20×30 wedding photo from shutterfly for little over $20. Nice! Spluge for us on a tight budget but heyyyyy what can you do when your inspired? The window pane was a little smaller than the picture but we thought we could cut it to size if needed.
The picture was a wee bit big for the 20×24 window pane so we trimmed it up.
We simply taped the picture to the wood frame of the back of the pane.
Then we had to get creative with the hanger. We made the normal stop at the Home Depot and paid around $2 for some wire cut to fit the frame. We used a staple gun and a little hammering to make sure it was a good fit. We also tested the hanger with a spotter a couple times. Try to get a wire that is thin enough that you can twist it if needed. The first piece of wire we bought was a little too thick and wasn’t able to be looped to be secured.
We used 3 nails and hammered those bad boys in and….
We now have a nice 20×24 framed wedding picture in a window pane in our living room. All for around $27.
The Hilliard home is now a little more complete. More to come…
