“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!”
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 Denise on a Whim, Denise had an old window and decided it would be fun to turn it into a cabinet. She collects strawberry decor, and thought a rustic cabinet would be a good place to keep her collection.
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.”
Maryann of Domestically Speaking tells us, “My brother works in construction and lately has been replacing lots of windows… yeah for me!” She had recently pinned a tutorial on printing large scale photos inexpensively, and while looking at her pile of frames thought, “Why not combine a window frame with a large print?”
Over at A Creative Princess, Terri’s husband replaced windows in an old farmhouse one day. Knowing how much she loves old windows, he brought a few of the smaller ones home to Terri. Terri re-imagined this window into cheerful holiday decor.
