Frugal Friday: Window frame = picture frame

This week I took a window sash we found in an alley and re-purposed it as a picture frame. I took the easy way out and just cut a piece of mat board down to size, glued photos on it, and stuck it to the back of the window frame. We thought about painting it and removing the hardware and all, but we decided we liked the idea of it still looking like a window.

Of course all of the photos are of the dogs!

There are a bunch of different ways to go about it. You could cut holes in the mat and mount the photos behind it for a more professional look; you can mount the mat and photos on the other side of the pane of glass to make it more of a shadow box; you could mount photos onto plexiglass instead of the mat and have a clear border; or you could just mount one large photo.
