“I picked up an old window beside the road last spring, as I was driving my son to preschool on trash collection day,” Nina tells us at Everyday Enchanting. “It was propped up against the mailbox in front of an antique colonial farmhouse. Of course I had to pull over!”
April from House By Hoff is back to share another rescue with us. ”Remember when I found a bunch of old windows on the side of the road and said that I had a lot of different ideas for them?” she asks. ”I wasn’t lying. This will make my third (and probably final) old window project!”
Karen blogs at Dogs Don’t Eat Pizza, where she was lucky enough to find a pile of old windows on the curb that her neighbor was throwing away. She’s been having fun figuring out how to reuse all those windows.
After finding a pile of gorgeous vintage windows on the side of the road recently, April has been sharing all the ways she’s repurposing those windows at House by Hoff. (I featured one of those transformations here.) Her latest window project is perfect for a summertime vignette.
At House by Hoff, April tells about her latest rescue. ”My husband and I came across a stack of probably 20 huge, old windows on the side of the road a few months ago. I’m not sure if it’s how loud I shrieked for him to pull over, or his quick reflexes, but either way we were in a stranger’s driveway taking their old windows before I could fully process my luck!”
Shari from Turnstyle Vogue loves to incorporate old windows into her home décor. If you’ve been itching to get your hands on an old window of your own, Shari suggests checking out “vintage stores, Habitat ReStores, Craigslist and your local recycling center.”
Sara from Thrifty Treasures found an old suitcase stand on the curb, one day. We’re talking about the thing at a hotel that unfolds so you can set your suitcase on top of it. The one Sara found was constructed from wood and had curvy legs that Sara loved.
