EASY STEPS TO BUILD A GARDEN ‘WINDOW’
Add another dimension to your revival with a faux window. All you need is a mirror, a couple of louvre window shutters, and a few lengths of new and recycled hardwood.
Gather your supplies
•Recycled louvre window shutters
•Recycled fence paling
You’ll also need Keyhole plates; neutral cure silicone; drill; masonry bit; wall plugs; various screws
STEP 1 If there are no mounts on the back of the mirror, as here, attach keyhole plates to the back using neutral cure silicone. Drill, insert wall plugs and put screws in the wall to suit then hang the mirror.
STEP 2 Cut lengths of hardwood sleeper to suit the height of the window shutters. Pre-drill, insert wall plugs and screw timber to brick wall, leaving a slight gap to the mirror.
STEP 3 Hold window shutters against sleepers and screw in place.
STEP 4 Fix lengths of recycled hardwood between sleepers at top and bottom, and a recycled fence paling to the bottom of the window to act as the sill.
