Window Grills

We are currently living in a rental home, older built in mid 70's with sliding windows.
I want to make grids/grills for the windows to give a different look. I thought that you could buy kits to do this but haven't found any in my search.
Since it is a rental - these should be temporary; although I am very lucky in the fact that the landlord is very happy with any changes that I have made to date. In fact she has said "do whatever you want" So does anyone have any ideas?
I was thinking perhaps pvc molding, but how to fasten it to the window edge?

Hi htebe!


You can try here: http://www.newpanes.com/howitworks.html


If you have sliding windows just make sure you have enough clearance for them to slide properly

Has the recession really led us to make do instead of just throw away?
In these economically challenged times, do you think we need a Repair Manifesto?
What do you do to get yourself out of a style slump?

I think the reason that most DIY site have you buying kits like those at newpanes is that to make a grid/grille from scratch probably requires a lot of mitre cutting which most amateur DIY'ers probably would want to avoid...
