My kitchen windows get A LOT of sunlight and I was in need of creating window treatments that wouldn’t close my backyard view (as would happen with curtains). That is when we decided on making these window awnings to soften the bright sun rays.
We made these wood awnings using the following materials:
– 1×1 wood
– 2×4 wood
– 4×1/4 wood
– Spar urethane spray
-hinges and metal decor
I haven’t provided measurements or quantities as it depends on the window’s length and height.
Below are pictures of our process:
We sprayed the wood awnings with Spar Urethane (a protective clear finish for exterior or interior wood exposed to sunlight, water, or temperature changes).
We added three hinges to the top of the awning. And added metal frames under the awnings (which were originally flower hangers :).
We loved the end result and are looking into incorporating it in more windows (we have quite a few!) 🙂
Thank you for stopping by!
