Several years ago I hit the jackpot. Someone was tearing all the windows out of their very old carriage house (I think that's what it was). I took 5 or 6 of the windows and have had them ever since. One of them I had hanging on the wall for a while. I have always wanted to do cool things with these windows but was never quite sure what. I got the idea of using a poster print for the background. The photo I used is sentimental because it is looking out of the barn at the farm where my Mom grew up. To make it I cut a piece of mat board slightly smaller than the back of the window. I positioned the poster and the mat board and used an electric staple gun to tack it all down. I added two screw eyes and some hanging wire to the top back.
