Old window ideas
This old window is the perfect rustic backdrop for an equally rustic wreath. Layering your decorating can bring a much more substantial focus to projects and this old window does that well! Perfect for living room wall decor and more.
Have a window frame without glass panes? Flip it into a window mirror instead!
Mirrors help bounce light around, especially useful in darker areas. Although this particular sample isn’t used for looking into, it’s my bet the entry way is much brighter because of it! Gorgeous! Perfect for an entryway.
Window picture frame
This easy old window decoration tutorial tells a story of my family. Photos are held in place with string for a rustic/modern twist. It’s an interesting and beautiful way to frame old pictures! Especially if the old window comes from a childhood home.
Old window Christmas sign
Could a single window pane Christmas sign get any cozier looking? Love the rustic warmth of burlap with this fun, festive Christmas message!
Old window storage cabinet
This used window flipped into a gorgeous cabinet from reclaimed wood is a true, one of a kind treasure, custom built to suit the window used! The depth of this DIY project would make a fabulous kitchen or bathroom cabinet.
One of my favorite ideas is to flip a huge old window with many panes into a productive chalkboard! The sections act well to separate days from tasks making it a perfect family command center. Or possible a massive calender in an office.
Old window garden pergola
Could your own backyard or flowerbeds use a little garden art? These old window frames turned into a garden pergola add so much interest to plain posts! Can also be scaled smaller for a garden arbor. Can you imagine vines winding through all the frames or hanging a garden swing from this structure? So charming!
Old window mantel decor
Gather up your finest finds from flea markets for this funky layered mantel with a salvaged rustic vibe. Start with an old window as the base, then layer collections around the old window from there.
Layered windows Christmas mantel decor
Doesn’t this old window mantel resemble a snowy cabin in the woods, flickering with the warmth of a fireplace? Realistic indoor snow tips in this one too! Gather up a group of old windows from salvage yards to get this look!
Old windows on a garden shed
Have you ever thought to enhance a garden shed with old windows? The windows were positioned first, then the siding built around them. this old window frame idea certainly adds a dash of window authenticity to this shed, doesn’t it?
Window string art
With the same idea as the photo string wrapped window, here’s how you can wrap other trinkets in the window instead! A vintage rolling pin and wooden spoon provide the perfect kitchen art. Kind of resembles a shadow box appearance, doesn’t it?
