graphics and c++

I have been learning C++ on netbeans by experimenting and referencing to the tutorials whenever I get lost, but now I need a little more help. I just finished making a TIC-TAC-TOE game using "_" and "|" to make the board. I would like the program to open up a window and have "real graphics" apposed to just typing the board. How can I do this? If I am over my head, then what should I do/learn next instead?
Get a graphic lib and start with that lib's tutorials.

I personally prefer SFML.

Though SDL 2.0 is another option.
Learn a Graphics Library like Disch said, SFML is the best for beginners as well as SDL 2.0.
