Upcycled window pinspiration

As you may have seen in this post, I have a few old windows filling up space in the lounge until I find the time and the right idea to upcycle them. They are just three old windows of about 5 that I have.
The glass is not ideal... so I am looking at taking it out and leaving the frames empty, or maybe even replacing with clear glass... 

Here are my window's in the corner.

Here are my favorite upcycled old windows, all oozing with chippy paint and character of their past lives.

I can't wait to take the plunge and see what I can do with my old windows. And then find them the perfect home in my house.


  1. Cute ideas~ I really like the one with the shelf and Ball jars. Can't wait to see what you do with your windows.

  2. Great ideas! My husband found 5 old windows in the neighbors garbage :) and smart man that he is brought them home! I just used one on my fireplace mantel. They're so versatile!

  3. Those are wonderful creations! There are a lot of ways that we can make use of old windows; we just have to use our imagination and be creative.

  5. These are really nice window projects! I like them being used as frames the best. I hope that I can make some of these sometime. I should start looking for old windows first.
