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.
The window April chose to work on this time was already covered in the prettiest shade of blue, chippy paint. She cleaned it gently to preserve as much of that paint as possible, then sealed it carefully. The panes of this window were intact, so April layered them with latex paint and then chalkboard paint, creating a chalkboard window! Adding a summery quote and a beachy garland were all it took to complete the look. I’ve got to find myself some old windows!

Liz at The Brambleberry Cottage has her very own stash of vintage windows and beadboard. Seriously, a barn full of them! (Doesn’t it just make your DIY, trash-to-treasure loving heart swoon?)
Liz put the windows and beadboard together to create a gorgeous pair of mirrors. These weathered, chippy mirrors are so full of character and charm!
See how Liz made them at The Brambleberry Cottage.
One of the things Lindsay from Diary of a Crafty Lady loves about living in New England is all the treasure that can be found on trash day from the old homes in the area. Lindsay has acquired quite the stash of old windows, made all the more charming by their cracked and peeling paint.
The large glass surface of this window was just begging for some vinyl, so Lindsay added a definition of family for a quick and easy transformation. Old windows make for great DIY wall art. Have you repurposed an old window into something fabulous?
