OLD, VINTAGE-Y WINDOWS









Andrew grabbed a few old windows for me from THIS house he is remodeling. I begged him to with all energy of heart. I couldn't stand to see them go in the trash.

And I had a vision.


Check out the inspiration I've found for using such windows...


Put fabric or scrapbook paper behind the glass...

Use it as a dry-erase board...

Spray chalkboard paint right over the glass...


Use them as picture frames for small pictures...



Connect several together with hinges and display on a table, dresser, or mantel...


Replace the glass with a mirror...

Hang on the wall with a wreath...


Build a flower box to hang under the window and fill with faux plants. 


Display over the fireplace as a mirror...

Place on a shelf with a wreath and other decor...

Build shutters to display on either side...


Use as a picture frame for a large picture...


Hang a mossy monogram in front...

Hang stars in front...

Use to frame smaller pictures...

Use as a coat rack (love the bunting too!)...


Build a coffee table...

And hang two and use as a headboard.

Phew...lots of ideas! I can't wait to move in to our new house and put some of these great ideas in to action. I'll be sure to show you the finished products!
