I am so very excited about this hack!
Firstly you must know it has always been a dream of mine to own the Restoration Hardware Giant French Letter Wall Art priced at $1500.00 BUT my vintage up-cycling soul just cannot fork over the dough when I know I can re-create it myself!
FINALLY I have a space for it.
Here is the situation...In the living room of my 2014 home we have these weird windows on either side of the fireplace. The entire back wall of the house is ALL windows and we have a west facing backyard so there is no shortage of light here! I actually hate these small windows. They take up wall space and leave no room for art, anything you place above or below the window just doesn't look right, and any decor you place in the window will be sun bleached or melted by the direct sun.
I decided I need to cover them and so the search began on all the kijiji/swap and buy sites for 2 frames.
GASP....I found two Ikea vilshult pictures were the exact size I needed, and they were hardboard type wood, framed and $25!!! My up-cycling/re-purposing mind exploded!!
