So, I finally took a break from other people's projects to finish up this one that I've been dying to do! Here is what you'll need:
-old window or large frame
-cardboard (backing for photo)
-spray adhesive (I used elmer's brand)
First off you'll need to choose a photo, one that you won't mind being gigantic! lol I choose something that wasn't a straight on face shot because I wanted it to seem like you were actually looking out a window and seeing a scene outdoors.
Save it as a black and white photo, then put it on a flash drive and take it to Office Depot/Office Max. Tell them you want an Engineers Print on gloss paper. (Mine was 24" X 46", they can only go up to 24" wide) I then trimmed my photo down to the size I needed to fit my window. The print only cost $10!!!! What a deal!
Cut your cardboard to the same size and spray adhesive on cardboard then very carefully place print on it smoothing center to outside avoiding wrinkling.
I used a staple gun to attach it to my window.
And TAAAADAAAAA, you have a beautiful, interesting piece of art!

Found this beautiful (and very solid I might add) piece at an estate sale. I couldn't wait to do one of these. I've been drooling over these on Pinterest for over a month now! So here she is! The color is a pale gray with a pop of terra cotta orange.
Can we take a moment to appreciate the gorgeous original hardware, OK continue on! :)
