When I bought my house seven years ago, I fell in love with all of the original, unpainted woodwork and windows. The house was built in 1927 though, so sadly the beautiful windows needed to be replaced so I didn't freeze my tooties off in the winter.
There was no way I was going to get rid of those beautiful windows though. Uh uh. No way! Here are a few different ways I repurposed the windows around the house:
Project #1 - privacy screen
I used S-Hooks to link these four windows together for a wind-blocking semi-privacy screen on my porch. I love how the windows creek a little when they sway in the wind. Next summer I may stencil a lacy design on each pane with a variety of bright colors that match my porch furniture. I have some really pretty crystals that I took from an old lamp that I may incorporate into some matching upcycled wind chimes too. Stay tuned!
Project #2 - eclectic wall hangings
I have an old Old OLD garage. It's got old paint. Old siding. An old roof. An old, well...everything. I'm surprised it's still standing. I can't afford to give it the new TLC that it deserves, so I instead I decided to just pretty it up a bit by eclectically hanging a few of the old windows. Eventually I'll add some flower boxes under each of them; just waiting to come across something perfect to upcycle!
Project #3 - upcycled address sign
I incorporated some fabric and used one of the more decorative panes as an address sign for my porch. I don't know what made me think of this idea, but I'm happy I did!
