Farmhouse Wall Decor with Windows


What a cute idea for adding farmhouse decor using an old chippy window!

Did you catch the $ Living Room Reveal? There were so many DIY projects I wasn&#;t even sure where to begin with the tutorials, but here we go&#; Let&#;s start with some old, chippy windows.

My father-in-law works in construction and was tearing out these old wood windows. Instead of trashing them, my dear mother-in-law kept them for me, knowing I&#;d find something to do with them. They ended up sitting in my garage for months, just waiting for a project. I ended up finding some Pinterest inspiration, and used them to create farmhouse wall décor. (While I always try to give credit for inspiration, the original creator appears to no longer have the blog online.)

Here&#;s What You&#;ll Need to Make Farmhouse Wall Decor

  • Wooden Window Frame&#; However many you choose to use
  • Hammer&#; If there&#;s glass in the frames
  • TSP&#; I used an all-purpose spray, but really think TSP would have been better
  • Polycrylic&#; This is used to seal the chippy paint. Because many old windows have the potential of containing lead, you want to seal that paint.
  • Chalk Paint (or other White Paint)- Optional
  • Paintbrush and/or Sponge Brush
  • Twine
  • Milk Bottles&#; (I reused Starbucks Frappuccino bottles 🙂 )
  • Faux Plant Stem&#; I bought one at Hobby Lobby and cut it apart to create the four I needed.
  • D Rings
  • Screwdriver

If you are using an older window with the potential of  lead-based paint, you can check the paint using a lead test. If it comes back positive, use proper mask and clean-up practices for dealing with lead-based paint.

Directions: Using Windows For Farmhouse Wall Decor

Start by laying your frames on a tarp. If the windows still contain the glass, use a hammer to break the glass out of the frames. Please be very careful doing this. You don&#;t want to cut yourself.

Once the glass has been removed, carefully discard it. (We just wrapped everything up in the tarp for disposal, and threw it all out&#; tarp included). Lay your frames on a clean tarp and wash the frames. I used some paper towels and my DIY All Purpose Spray, but something like TSP would have probably been a better choice.

Once clean and dry, apply a coat of polycrylic. This will seal the paint and prevent it from chipping.

I think our polycrylic got a little stain in it from a previous project, so it was drying on a little discolored. Therefore, I decided to paint on a layer of white chalk paint over the polycrylic once it had dried.

With the chalk paint dry, I added two D-Rings to the back of the frame. These are placed on the upper part of the frame, at opposite ends, for easy hanging.

To add the bottles, I looped some twine around the top of the frame and tied on the milk bottles. I first knotted the twine around the neck of the bottle and then wound it around (approximately 5 times). I double-knotted it again, making sure it was secure.

Hang it up on the wall (I would recommend using drywall anchors as windows can be a little heavier), add in the faux plant stems, and you&#;re done. Easy, unique, farmhouse-style wall décor.

When the holiday season arrives, you can change out the bottles and stems for something else. I went with bells and greenery.

These are such great decor staples so you don't have to spend so much for holiday decorating. #holidaydecorating

You can make a farmhouse window using only Dollar Tree supplies! It&#;s so easy to do!

Farmhouse window

I love Dollar Tree! I wish I could travel the entire United States just to visit all the Dollar Tree stores!

Okay, that may be a little obsessive, but I do seriously love Dollar Tree. I also love watching YouTube videos of others creating amazing things from items they&#;ve found at Dollar Tree.

And I love creating my own things using only Dollar Tree items. (I just haven&#;t worked up the nerve to make a video of these yet.)

I also love farmhouse decor, but it can be so expensive! One of my favorite stores is Kirkland&#;s, but I can&#;t afford anything from there so I only go there for ideas and to basically drool all over their stuff.

Farmhouse decor has really been in style lately and most of it is expensive! love to create the decor myself to save money since we are on a tight budget. Usually the decor I make is made using only Dollar Tree items, such as this DIY Farmhouse Window. Let me show you how I made that.

What you need:

DIY Farmhouse WIndow materials

What you do:

Step 1 &#; Gather Materials

Lay all of the picture frames and garden edging piece on a dropcloth or an old sheet and spray paint all sides. (The spray paint came from Walmart, but that was something I already had on hand.) Let everything dry for a few hours.

Paint the frames and garden edging on all sides

Step 2 &#; Glue and Clamp

After the frames were dry I glued them all together with the gorilla glue and clamped them together and let them dry.

Note: The gorilla glue I used was a clear epoxy and you had to squeeze it into a container and mix it together. I hated working with this glue because it smells terrible and it doesn&#;t stick well to the spray paint. If I make this again I will use e

Glue and clamp the frames together to create the farmhouse window

Step 3 &#; Glue on the edging

I completely forgot to take a picture of this part because I was too excited to get it all together and hang it up. I cut off the stakes on the edging that go into the ground before painting, but I should have left them on so that I could have glued them to the back of the &#;window&#;. This would have made it more steady, but I wasn&#;t thinking at the time so I just glued it along the front of the window.

While all of the materials were drying I made the wreath that I put on the front.

The Wreath for the Farmhouse Window

What you need:

What you do:

Step 1 &#; Gather materials

While the glue on the farmhouse window was drying I worked on making the wreath I wanted to hang on it. For the wreath, I used the Styrofoam hoop and reindeer moss from Dollar Tree. I had to cheat and use a wooden &#;family&#; sign from Walmart because of course the local Dollar Tree never has everything I need! Grrr&#;..

Dollar Tree wreath materials

Step 2 &#; Glue on the moss

I hot glued the moss to the wreath all the way around so none would be showing. This part gets super hot! These little rubber fingertips are amazing when working with hot glue. They have really saved a lot of burnt fingers in my house.

Also, this is super messy!! Make sure you have newspaper or something to work on that you can just throw in the trash when you are done.

Glue the reindeer moss to the foam wreath form

Step 3 &#; Glue on the sign

After the moss covered the entire foam wreath form, I hot glued the sign to the moss.

Attach the wood lettering sign to the wreath with hot glue.

Step 4 &#; Hang it up

I added a piece of jute string around the top of the wreath so that I could hang it on my farmhouse window.

I love how this farmhouse window turned out! It looks more expensive than it is &#; it only cost me less than $15 to make! Due to drying times, it took about 4 hours or so to dry.

DIY Farmhouse Torched Window Décor

This article, DIY Farmhouse Torched Window Décor is sponsored by Bernzomatic. All opinions are % my own.

I have another awesome Torch Bearer project to share with you today. In case you missed them, here are a few of my favorite Bernzomatic Torch Bearer projects from the past.

In this post, you will learn:

  • How to Build a Wood Frame from Scratch
  • How to Patina Unfinished Wood
  • Tips and Tricks for Working with Acrylic

First, let’s watch the video tutorial.

Watch the Video

Here is how to make the farmhouse torched window décor from start to finish. If you have questions, the complete instructions are below. If you still have questions, feel free to leave me a comment.

What You’ll Need

Time: Hours

Materials:

The materials list below is suggested. The type of wood and size is up to you. The measurements provided are the ones I used for the window you see in this tutorial. Consider repurposing old frames or scrap wood.

  • 2 &#; ” X ” X 34” Pieces of Poplar Wood
  • 1 – 31” ” Square Dowel
  • 6 – 9” ” Square Dowels
  • Wood Glue
  • Nail Brads
  • ” X 20” X 32” Acrylic Sheet
  • ” Screws

Equipment:

How to Build a Wood Frame from Scratch

Keep in mind that you can use any type of unfinished wood you would like and make it any size you wish.

There are basically three steps.

  • Measure all your pieces including the outer frame and inner panel pieces and cut them to size.
  • Mark your measurements in the wood any lay out the pieces. Glue them together with wood glue.
  • Nail it all together. If you are using a nail gun, it’s easiest to nail when the frame is on a worktable or nail downward if the glue on your frame is dry and it is sturdy enough to hold upright.

How to Patina Unfinished Wood

The Bernzomatic TS is ideal for this project because it works fast and efficiently. It’s a high intensity torch with a convenient trigger start.

You can also adjust the flame as needed by simply turning a knob. Be sure to work in a well-ventilated area or outside.

  • Protect your hands with gloves. Turn on the torch and turn up the flame. Push the trigger button.
  • Gently wave the flame in a smooth and even motion and burn the wood. Be sure to get each side, front, and back.
  • Once you patina the entire frame, use sandpaper to achieve the desired final look. I started with grit and then moved to a courser grit.
  • If desired, place a topcoat of acrylic glaze or polyurethane. I left this one as is.

You can stop here, or if desired, add an acrylic sheet for a finished look.

Tips and Tricks for Working with Acrylic

I choose to use acrylic instead of glass because it is:

  • sturdier than glass.
  • lighter weight than glass.
  • a better option for me since I have kids running around the house!

I placed the sheet on the back of the wood window frame and used a marker to mark the holes.

There are three things to consider when working with acrylic because you do not want it to crack.

  • Protect your work surface with a scrap piece of wood so you can drill the screw holes.
  • Start with a smaller drill bit and work your way up to the desired thickness of your screw.
  • Go slowly when screwing in the screw and be careful not to screw it in too far.

This farmhouse torched window décor can be used in your home throughout the year. Place a wreath on top or place family photos behind it. Use it horizontally or vertically; or hang it on a wall or place it a top a table or mantel.

How to Build a Decorative Window Frame From Just ONE Board

 Rustic Window Frame By Sawdust2Stitches For Remodelaholic.com

Hey all, it&#;s Corey back from Sawdust 2 Stitches.  If you know me,  you know I go ALL out for the Holiday Season, seriously I allocate more square footage for my Christmas decorations than I do for both of my own children. It is seriously that bad.  I love decorating for the holiday  season&#; but my excitement seems to fizzle out for any other holiday.  So,  I came up with this cute, simple window frame build that would allow me to easily change out a simple holiday wreath, in an effort to make all the other holidays not feel so left out.  So far it is working out perfectly and I love it! Bonus: You don&#;t even have to hang a wreath in it to make it look pretty.  It looks great as a stand alone piece as well! 

So,  lets dive in. 

How To Build A DIY Decorative Window Frame From Just One Board For Eason Seasonal And Holiday Decor @Remodelaholic

How to Build a Decorative Window Frame

This post contains affiliate links for your convenience. Learn more here. 

SUPPLY LIST:

  • (1) 1&#;x 4&#; x 8&#; Standard Board**
  • Ribbon (if desired) 
  • Wreath (if desired) 
  • Weathered  Oak Stain 
  • Flat White Paint 
  • Candle Wax 
  • Paint Brush 
  • 1 1/4&#;  Kreg Screws 

**As an alternate, you could build this from an inexpensive 1&#;3 and a 1&#; square dowel, with minor adjustments to your cuts and measurements. 

TOOLS RECOMMENDED:

  • Table Saw
  • Miter Saw
  • Drill 
  • Kreg Pocket Hole Jig 
  • Stapler (If adding ribbon) 
  • Putty Knife (If distressing paint ) 

CUT LIST:

  • (x2) @ 24&#; 
  • (x2) @ 13&#; 

1&#; x 3/4&#; Board 

  • (x1) @ 19&#; 
  • (x4) @ 6&#;

 


Step 1:  Rip Down Board

 You know what is awesome?  Is that you can get all the boards you need out of (1)  1&#;x 4&#; standard pine board. Set your table saw to 1&#;  and rip down the board.  This will give you 2 boards,  approximately* 1&#; wide and the other 2 1/2&#;  wide. ( It will actually be 2 3/8&#;  to accommodate  the saw blade width when ripping down the board.) 

**As an alternate, you could build this from an inexpensive 1&#;3 and a 1&#; square dowel, with minor adjustments to your cuts and measurements.

Step 2:  Frame

   To construct the outer frame you will use the (2)  24 1/4&#;  boards, and the (2) 13&#; boards.  As you can see in the image below you will need to  drill pocket holes in both ends of both 13&#; boards. 

IMG

Screw both boards together using 1 1/4&#; kreg screws.

Step 3:  Grid

For the center gird you will need to drill pocket holes in both ends of all the grid pieces. (4) @ 6&#; and (1) @ 19 1/4&#; 

IMG

 I would suggest marking the grid/board placements before you begin drilling.  It just makes it easier, and less room for error.

Step 4: Finish 

Before starting on the painting/staining process I sanded down my entire window frame. 

 I wanted to give mine and old rustic look so I began by staining my frame using &#;Weathered Oak&#;  by Winwax.  I ended up doing two coats  in order to get it to the color I wanted. 

DIY Rustic Window Frame By Sawdust2Stitches For Remodelaholic.com

Once the frame is completely  dry I was ready to distress it.  Most common way to get the chippy pain look is by using either petroleum jelly or candle wax.  I prefer Candle wax, I feel like I have a little more control with it. 

 In order to distress it, I  used the edge of an old candle  to rub over various parts of the frame.  Basically  rub the candle wherever you  want the stain color to show through. 

DIY Rustic Window Frame By Sawdust2Stitches For Remodelaholic.com 2 Next we add the paint!   I know some people swear by chalk paint, but I have found regular old flat latex paint works just as well for this. DIY Rustic Window Frame By Sawdust2Stitches For Remodelaholic.com 3  I applied the paint using a basically  ruined paint brush&#; haha,  an old used paint brush makes for a great  stiff bristle brush.  It made for a streaky application.   I literally  painted the whole thing in a minute, because I did not need to make it look pretty! DIY Rustic Window Frame By Sawdust2Stitches For Remodelaholic.com 4 Once the paint is dry I was ready to scrape off  some of the paint.  I use a putty knife and give the whole frame a quick once over.  The places where the candle wax was applied scrapes up really  easily!  Giving it that old chippy  paint look. DIY Rustic Window Frame By Sawdust2Stitches For Remodelaholic.com 5  DIY Rustic Window Frame By Sawdust2Stitches For Remodelaholic.com 6 


Step 5: Accessorize 

 While I think that this window frame is adorable as-is,  it is the perfect  background for many seasonal options! By adding a simple ribbon it becomes an adorable backdrop for a wreath!

To attach the ribbon I used a heavy duty stapler.

Frame window diy farmhouse

Farmhouse style window frames are a great way to decorate our home, fun to style and so easy to make it. learn how to make yours right here!

I’ve been wanting to make this window frames tutorial for a long, long time. I’ve always loved how easy it is to switch decorations using window frames and I had that huge wall behind the sofa screaming for something there. 

DIY Farmhouse style Window Frames Tutorial

DIY Farmhouse style Window Frames

So before you say or think anything, I know the frame doesn’t stand out very much, almost white on white but the actual intention was very different and I intend to fix it soon.

When I started creating the window frame I had decided to paint the wall behind the sofa in grey. So I worked confidently that the farmhouse style window frame would look amazing, well, still does, I love it, but more amazing. 

The thing is that the grey end up being a lot lighter than I anticipated and the frame was already done. So I embraced it for now. My plan now is eventually sand it more until reveals more of the base color so it will stand out more from the wall.

But for the purposes of this tutorial, I will stick with it as is. Creating from scratch a simple window frame like this is so freakin’ easy. It takes some time but it’s super easy.

I’m not a carpenter, I don’t have all the tools, as you might notice on the photos, I work in my living room so if I can make it anyone can. I don’t think this is THE way to build it, it probably has tons of ways but this is what I could manage with what I had which is great. I didn’t spend much either so yayyy!

Here we go!

How to Make Farmhouse style Window Frames

I made this video tutorial for you of my process. But if you are more of a step-by-step written detailed tutorial, just scroll down a little bit and keep reading.

Firstly prepare your working space and sand slightly your wood boards to remove any imperfections and possible splinters.

Present pieces to make sure all the pieces fit as planned.

Draw your marks for pocket holes as holes and center marks as simple lines as follow:

Window Frames guide

All lines should meet when you present the pieces. This will ensure that when you drill the screws everything will fit.

Using your keg-jug or your favorite pocket hole tool, make the pocket holes that you marked. Make sure you drill in the same direction as your arrow guides.

I didn’t make the pocket holes on the internal boards because I thought it might break my boards so I went for the frame boards even though it created a small carve on the edges. But when I hung it’s not visible at all.

Once done with the pocket holes, it’s time to assemble the frames. 

Start with the frame drilling your screws in and then fit the inner pieces.

Use glue to secure each piece better.

I used a flat straight brace to secure inner pieces joints.

Your first window frame is finished. Now create the other 2 if you are making my setup. 

The next step is painting your frames.

Stain the frames first. I created my own stain mixing latex paint and water ratio. I used the brown I love you can use your favorite stain.

Apply the stain and then rub it with a cotton cloth.

Let them dry for a couple of hours.

Then using your white latex paint, apply dry brush technique to create the rustic farmhouse style.

Dry brushing is super easy. You can check out my blog post where I share the full detailed step-by-step.

But for now, pour a little bit of paint on a plastic plate. 

Then very gently dab the tip of your dry paintbrush into the paint and dabbed it on a piece f paper or paper towel to remove excess paint.

You want to keep the tip of your paintbrush slightly wet but not oversaturated with paint, so I suggest starting off with just a tiny bit of paint and adding more as you get comfortable with the technique.

Use short, quick brushstrokes in both directions (along the wood grain and across them) to give it a textured and accent the wood lines.

When you finished each frame let them dry for a couple more hours.

Now you need to sand your pieces. Here there’s no perfect spot. Sand as much as you need to get the look you want or like. As I mentioned I might sand mine some more to revel more base color so it stands out more from the wall. So be free, be creative.

Clean and remove dust with a piece of cloth.

Now the last step is amounting them and hang them.

I decided to place the large frame on top of the smaller ones. 

On the back, drill some screws to secure the position you want your frames to stay.

Take advantage of the spaces behind boards to screw your hooks. I set them facing the same directions so it would be easier to hang.

You are done!!! Seal it with Spray varnish and voila!

Now just pick your perfect spot and hang it away!!!

My living room changed since I made the window frames and the video so that&#;s why they look different.

I absolutely love how it turned out! Right now I have the rustic heart hung on the frame but for Christmas, I had a pretty wreath! So the imagination is the limit!

Supplies for DIY Farmhouse Window Frame

Here’s what you need to make your own DIY Farmhouse Window Frame Decor:

4 – 5×8 stretch canvases – Or, for larger DIY distressed window decor, you can use larger canvases from the craft store. You can find value pack canvases at JoAnn’s, Michael’s, and Hobby Lobby, and use a coupon to make a larger window without spending a fortune!
White matte paint – You can find the mini bottles of acrylic paint for less than a dollar at the craft store.
Stain
Paint brush – A small, coarse bristle brush is best to paint your DIY farmhouse window frame.
Sponge brush
Ribbon – I love the look of the bright red ribbon against the DIY distressed faux window for Christmas. You could also switch out the ribbon after Christmas to something that is not seasonal.
Pliers
High heat hot glue gun with industrial grade glue sticks – Be sure to look on the package of the glue sticks to make sure they are suitable for wood!
Faux mini wreath – This one is a faux cedar wreath that measures approximately 10 inches in diameter.

How to Make Faux Distressed Windows for Christmas Decor

Step 1: Remove canvases from the frames.

Start by carefully removing the staples from the backs of the Dollar Tree stretch canvases using pliers. You can save the canvas material for another craft project, or just throw it away.

Step 2: Stain the Dollar Tree stretch canvas frames.

Stain the four frames using a foam brush or paint brush. Just brush on the stain in a thin layer. You may want to wear disposable gloves so that you don’t end up with any stain on your hands.

Once your frames are stained, allow them to dry for a full 24 hours so that the stain has ample time to soak into the wood.

Step 3: Glue the frames together to form a DIY Window Frame.

Next, use a high heat glue gun with industrial strength glue sticks to glue the stained frames together to create a faux window frame, like this:

If you want a larger DIY faux window frame, you can use more stretch canvas frames to create a faux distressed window with 6 or 8 window panes.

*NOTE – Be sure to check the package of whatever glue that you are using to ensure that it is suitable for wood projects. If you can’t find industrial strength hot glue, you can also use gorilla glue or E glue.

Step 4: Dry brush your DIY Farmhouse Window Frame.

After the glue on your faux window frame is completely dry, use the “dry brushing” technique to paint the frame white.

To dry brush the DIY window frame, simply apply a very small amount of paint to your brush, keeping the brush mostly dry, and lightly apply paint to the frame. Be sure to not get too much paint on your brush, or your brush will be wet, and the finished look will be more solid white than distressed and “chippy”.

Step 5: Tie a wreath onto your new DIY Farmhouse Window Frame.

To finish off your cute new DIY fake window frame decor, use your choice of ribbon to add a pretty wreath on top.

Be sure to cut enough ribbon to allow the wreath to hang in the middle of the window frame. Then loop the ribbon through your wreath and bring it back up and over the top of the faux window frame.

You can hot glue the two ends of the ribbon to the back of the frame using a small line of hot glue. That way, you can easily cut off the ribbon and change it out from season to season.

Step 6: Hang your DIY Window Frame as wall decor!

This step is totally optional, but if you want to hang your DIY distressed window frame on the wall, then add command strips or picture hangers to the back of the frame. You can also display your cute new faux window frame on a fireplace mantel or a buffet table with some other farmhouse decor items.

And that’s it!

This DIY distressed faux window is SO easy to make, and since it’s made with Dollar Tree supplies, it’s also inexpensive. So why not make two?! These faux window frames would look awesome on either side of a large mirror or farmhouse wall art in a dining room or living room. Or, you could make a bunch to sell at craft fairs!
