Old Window #2

A couple weeks ago, I posted some old windows that I bought HERE.  (I bought these windows from Craigslist.) I put the 1st window on my back fence for a Backyard Treatment- You can find that post HERE.
Well, I finally finished my 2nd project with these windows.  I made a cork board picture frame for my daughters room. 
Here it is...
 Here is the window before...
This project took me a little longer than I expected because I knew what I wanted, but I was not sure how to do it.  I knew that I wanted cork board instead of the actual windows.  One night I tried taking out the windows and I am telling you- those windows are indestructible!  I broke 3 razor blades trying to get the glass out!  
So my Plan B was to glue the cork board directly onto the window.  I actually used Mod Podge and Mod Podged some fabric to the cork board, and the cork board to the window.  To my surprise, this worked great!  
Then, I had four left over knobs that I put at the bottom of the window.  I also lined each window with some trim to hide any gaps from the cork board.  To finish it off, I just pinned some pictures of my daughter to the window and it was done!

I saved all my old windows from my house and have done a similar project. However, my pictures are behind the glass which makes it so hard when I want to change out the pictures. Love the way you did it!

Just found you off of One Tough Mother and am loving your blog. I'm a new follower. http://letkidscreate.blogspot.com

What a beautiful idea. I'm kicking myself right now because I walked right passed a window just like this a few weeks ago, not picking it up because I didn't want the neighbors to think I was a weirdo. Stupid me.
