Decorating with window panes is a creative way to add style to any room. With imagination, you can transform window panes into a number of creative decorative ideas.
WHATS THE BEST WAY TO SECURE A WINDOW FRAME TO A WALL?
There are many different ways to attach a window to a wall but I feel D-rings and picture hanger hooks are the best. They come in many sizes and give you the exact amount of weight they support. Simply attach the D-rings to the back of the window and attach the picture hanger hooks to the wall. Use your tape measure and level to ensure proper installation.
HOW DO I MAKE A WINDOW FRAME LOOK RUSTIC?
To make your window frame look rustic, you want to make it look old, used, distressed and weathered. Here are a few DIY tricks you can use to make your window look the way you want it to.
- Glue & Paint – Before painting your window, try adding some glue as a base coat. When the glue dries enough to form a thin skin, that’s when you can add your paint top coat. As the glue dries, it will form a crackle effect.
- Paint & Vinegar – After you have painted your window and let it dry, use a spray bottle with vinegar and spray down the paint in the areas you want to distress. Use some old rags to rub away the paint.
- Paint & Sandpaper – Once dry, sand down your paint using a fine-grit sandpaper, sanding block or palm sander.
- Bang it up – In order to add age to your wood, beat it up a little. Dents, nicks and gouges add character.
