Some ideas are so simple. I took one window and simply hung it on a wall in my daughter's room across from the one window in her room. I am yet undecided about whether I will put pictures of flowers in the glass or floral stick-ons maybe. (Her room has floral decor.) By itself looks fine too, so there it is - as simple as just hanging it!
Here's a decorated window from growingpanesdecor on Etsy. The extra touches add a lot!
I am amazed at the talent of people like preciouspages on Etsy. This window has been turned into a real work of art...and it's being sold for charity!
I found this window at my local Habitat for Humanity ReStore for $5.00 - that's right, $5.00! I bought some decorative L-brackets ($20 for four) and painted them to give them an old, patina look, and then put them onto the window with some old salvaged wood I had sitting around.
We hung this window shelf above the stove to serve as a spice rack, but it clearly holds much more! *If you do this, be sure to secure it with screw into studs. You don't want this to fall.
Another fun and creative idea is this Chalkboard Organizer from adropinthebucket on Etsy. I don't think I ever would have thought of this - what a great idea!
A few more ideas for using old windows for which you can find how-to steps online:
- mirror (replace broken panes with mirror)
- space divider
- table top (just add legs)
- pot rack
- hanging candle holder
- backdrop in the garden
- garden vine support (if glass is missing)
- tray (smaller windows)
