Habitat for Humanity – Windows of Opportunity Almost Complete

I had the opportunity to see and photograph all the completed projects for Windows of Opportunity today, and I must say I’m really impressed! There’s not only an amazing amount of work done, but all really well done too! There will be lots to bid on at the Gala, and a couple make me want to bid on them myself!

I’ve still been working to get my project complete and figured I was on the last day. Got all the photos done and sent to the printer yesterday. Picked them up today! I had to still trim the photos to size, cut the matte for the photos to size, piece it all together. The lock from the frame was stripped of paint and lightly sanded with sand paper and steel wool. I got two wall hangers for the rear and put them on the outside frame to hang on the wall instead of the chain that was originally attached on the top.

I’ve cleaned some of the glass and begun securing the photos to the matte, and the matte to the glass. Unfortunately I ran out of acid-free tape securing it all in place, so I will need to complete the project tomorrow once I get some more. Just need to finish securing the photos to the glass, clean the other three pieces of glass to sandwich the photos in between, and tack it all in place from behind! Almost complete!

Here it is in it’s current state (one photo was turned as tape ran out half way applying it, so I don’t want to set it in place just yet). The colour can be sen much more clearly than the previous photos and you can really start to see what the final frame will look like! The matte for the photos will actually sit behind them (can’t be too thick for fear of bending/breaking the glass), and I used a textured material like Bristol board which looks and feels really nice!
