A Room With A View Have you ever wished you had a great view right outside your bedroom window but all you see when you wake up in morning is wall of next-door neighbor's house? Well then follow these easy steps to create your own window with a great view.
What You Will Need for This Decorating Project: 1.An old window preferably with glass still intact. You can find these at flea markets or salvage yards. 2.Poster or picture with a pretty view large enough to put behind window. 3.2 mug hooks 4.1 nail 5.Wire 6.10 thumbtacks 7.Hammer
If you want to paint window, do this before moving on to first step. You should consider though that sometimes weathered, antique look adds a lot of charm.
How to Get This Look: - Put window on floor and put poster or picture on it so that front is facing down. - Use thumbtacks to attach picture or poster to window. - Make sure picture is right side up. - Lean window against wall so that you are looking at back. - Put 2 mug hooks on back of your window in top corners. - Make sure opening for mug hooks is facing down. - Use wire to create a “hanger” for window. Secure two ends of wire on mug hooks. Make sure there is a lot of excess wire so that when you hang window wire creates a triangle with 4-inch sides. - Hammer nail into wall where you want your window. - You can now add window treatments to it just as you would a normal window or wrap silk flower garlands around wire.
Old windows can be used in a variety of ways. Here are just a few more creative ideas for old window and a plain wall.
