Everyone is always excited about their new Fair Oaks, CA replacement windows after a window replacement. However, you should also get excited about all the creative uses for your old, now unused windows. There are lots of things you can do with old windows to bring them new, interesting life again.
Before you get rid of your old windows, check out this list of inspired and fun DIY projects you can use them for:
- Chalkboard Window – Turn the old window into a communication center by painting the glass panes with chalkboard paint. Use chalk to write out your grocery lists, or messages for the family.
- Interesting Bathroom Mirrors – Remove the glass panes from the window frame and replace them with mirrors from your local craft store. Then hang your new mirror in the bathroom above the sink for practical use, or above the tub as decoration
- Art Frame – Make your favorite painting pop by hanging it in front of an old window. This saves you money on buying a frame, and also gives the room the illusion of more natural light.
- Wreath Display – This option is quick and easy. Just hang an old window in your living room or family room and use it to display a wreath. This gives a lovely farmhouse feel, and adds a touch of greenery to the space.
- Jewelry Organizer – Take the glass out of the old window and install corkboard or a cushion. Then use hooks or even pushpins to secure jewelry into the spaces. Hang it up on your bedroom wall or lean it on top of your dresser as a functional and chic way to organize your jewelry.
- Window Wall – Another more in-depth project, but it’s well worth it. Combine a few old windows to form a window wall you can roll in and out of a space for creative separation as needed. You can elegantly separate your dining room and kitchen when you have guests, or the living room and an office when you need to get work done.
- Mini Greenhouse – Take a few of the old windows and nail, screw or even glue them together to make a cube perfect for use as a mini greenhouse perfect for a starter vegetable garden or a way to test out your green thumb.
- Cabinet – Build your own over the toilet bathroom cabinet with your old windows. This project takes a bit more building experience, as you have to cut and nail boards to fit behind the old window and install a hinge to make the window the cabinet door. But once you’re done, it looks great and is functional too.
If any of these projects sound fun or interesting to you, you first need to get some new replacement windows. That’s where The Window and Door Shop, Inc. comes in.
