Simple and Creative Ways to Repurpose Old Windows

Theresa loves repurposing old things or turning things into other useful items. She loves creating something new from something old.


Old windows not only make great pieces of art, but are being grabbed up at a fast rate by those who have found great ways to repurpose old windows. Repurposing is creative, very green and fun!


Old Repurposed Wood Window Hanging Over My Kitchen Sink

Every house I have ever owned had a window above the kitchen sink, except this last home. However, it does have a nice big picture window at the other end of the kitchen where the breakfast table is, so all I have to do is glance in that direction and see outside. It brings in a lot of light from outdoors. However, I was delighted to find that when we moved into this home, the previous owners had left an old wood window hanging above the sink.


They had hand-painted flowers on the glass of the old wood window. They were mediocre. Their painted flowers were just not my taste, so I removed the painted flowers and added what I had at the time, pages from on old Monet calendar from the year 2004. Monet is one of my favorite artists, so I thought for the moment, I would just tape to the back of the wood window, the prints with the colors that would most blend with my kitchen colors until I decided what I wanted to add to the old window. I loved it. And it was so simple to do. Then after a good while, I decided I wanted a bit of a change above my kitchen sink. The following is what I came up with as a change. This change is just as elementary to do as was my initial change to the bare window.

Obviously, I love Van Gogh too, and I found my favorite print at a local craft store. I have always loved Van Gogh's Almond Blossom and the colors of the print match my kitchen colors so well, that it was a must to purchase! Now, I look out my window and see a beautiful Almond Blossom tree with blossoms all the time.


Of course, one can easily have a favorite photo blown up from one's travels, i.e., the beach, mountains or even around your home during certain seasons, and it will feel as though you are truly looking out a window at your surroundings.

Old Windows Can Be Found at Flea Markets or Salvage Yards

I love finding great deals on old wood windows at flea markets or salvage yards! However, as they are growing ever so popular, they are getting harder and harder to find, and they are being snapped up immediately.

I am still searching for an oval or round old wood window, such as that found in a lighthouse. That would be so awesome just to display on a bare wall as a focal point without doing one thing to it! I saw this done by my favorite designer, Lisa Teague, who happens to live on the coast in New Hampshire in a small house by the sea.

Another Old Wood Window Without Glass in a Different Shape

I saw this old wood window without the glass and thought immediately that I could turn it horizontally and add a bit of chicken wire to the back of it and make a simple message / picture board with a lot of character. And that is exactly what I did! It could not have been easier to do.

Materials Needed for the Message / Picture Board


  • One Old Wooden Window (I like the longer, more narrower ones for this project.)


  • Chicken Wire (cut to fit the back of the window)


  • Staple gun


  • Colorful clips, paperclips or tiny clothespins (All can be found at your local dollar store for just $1 - I prefer the tiny, brightly colored plastic clothes pins, but I could not find a pack this time.)


Stapling Chicken Wire on Back of Old Wood Window Without Glass to Make a Message / Picture Board

Here, all I had to do was staple a small amount of chicken wire that I had leftover from another project to the back of the old window, just enough to cover the back of the frame. Then I cut the extra chicken wire overlapping the frame and bent back any little strands left hanging. That is it! Your message / picture board is reading to hang and display any special mementos you so desire and important reminders in a creative manner.

Favorite Mementos for This Week


Message / picture boards are great for keeping those special mementos like cards, notes, etc. received from special friends that make you smile when you look at them. A great place for a message / picture board is right in front of where you may spend more time such as your desk at home above your computer. That is my favorite spot to hang this message / picture board as I can easily glance up during the day and smile, or when necessary add a reminder note.

Recent and Special Photos Are Great


If you are like me, then you most likely have tons and tons of photos that you would love to see from time-to-time. That is what makes message / picture boards so great, as you can change them out as often as you wish and then enjoy your special photos, cards, notes or messages and take note of important reminders too!

Heavy-Duty Double-Paned Windows Found at Flea Market for $10 Each

Going into Uncharted Territory Now!


I decided to go into uncharted territory by adding a special touch to the outside of my husband's man garage / shed. Our main garage, where we keep our vehicles is out in the front of the house. My husband's man garage out back is a really nice sized garage filled with his man stuff. It was built to match the style of our home.


When I saw the above two double-paned windows at a flea market, noticing that they match the windows on our home, I purchased them for $10 each. These windows are very heavy and require heavy-duty hanging materials to hang for this project. Please see the list of materials needed below for this particular project.


Below is a photo of the outside of my husband's man garage before I added my special project to the white barren walls. I did not really want the windows looking too new, so I brushed on a little black paint to give them a more distressed look. Initially, I did not realize that the panes on the windows are in between the double glass, so painting those parts of the windows did not happen.

Materials necessary for this project.


  • Two matching windows (Heavy-duty windows already pretreated for outdoor use.)


  • Four heavy-duty eye bolts for hanging


  • Four heavy-duty metal clips to attach to eye bolts


  • Paint brush


  • Painters tape


  • Two heavy-duty chains cut at the same length


  • Black exterior paint (It is optional to paint and, of course, choose your own color choice.)


  • Two wrought iron long planters with filler


  • Four smaller eye bolts for hanging wrought iron planters


  • Variety of colorful plants


  • Soil for planting


  • Drill


My Choice of Plants to Fill Planters to Hang from Old Windows

My choice of a variety of plants to fill planters to hang from old windows.


Although I already had the two wrought iron planters that used to be hanging on our old deck, I had to go out and find new flowers and plants to fill these containers for this project as the severe winter storm we had here in the deep south a couple of weeks ago destroyed my beautiful cabbage flowers and some pansies. We were totally caught off guard and did not realize we would have three inches of snow and ice for over three days on the ground! It is very unusual for the deep south.


So, I was thrilled to find these plants for this project. Even the local nurseries were not prepared for the ice and suffered a great loss of their plants.


For these planters I used parsley, kale (Red Chidori) and Swiss Chard (Bright Lights), all of which are edible!

Repurposing Helps the Environment and Creates Beauty


Whatever your imagination can envision as to repurposing old windows, the sky is the limit!

I had a lot of fun thinking of a variety of ways to repurpose old windows, and I have plenty more ideas to share in the future. I hope the next time you come across an old window you, too, can think of a creative way to repurpose it and help not to litter up our lovely planet, but reuse what we have already been given!

That's a great deal if you can find them. Maybe if there's a local nursery they can order them now for you. Yes, the doors with the glass panes in the garden would be beautiful! Amen about that.

Jackie Lynnley from the beautiful south on December 04, 2015:

Yes I saw if you got three you could get them like 8 bucks each so if things slow down a little for me I would like to plant some before Christmas if I can get them. Some places want to wait til spring to send them and I really don't like that. may just call around some first.

Thinking more about those doors wouldn't it be nice just to have one or two in the garden somewhere near flowers? I have some great pictures where they were used in a garden for a wedding! Painted white with glass panes and so beautiful. Might think of a question to put them in to look at!

God help us to enjoy another spring.

Hugs

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on December 02, 2015:

Hi Jackie,

Oh, yes, the doors with panes are the best for the green house, like old French doors are great! I'm sure you can come up with something creative, as you are very creative from what I've seen in your gardens.

After Christmas I bet you can rack up a lot with your credit.

I did not see that about the service trees. I've never heard of them before. I will Google and see what they are all about. They sound beautiful. I love finding unique trees and plants too and the service trees sound perfect.

Have fun!

Hugs

Jackie Lynnley from the beautiful south on December 02, 2015:

I really think I will see what I can come up with next spring and I may just do that. I do see doors all the time but even though my car is a hatchback type car I got just for yard sales I don't know if many doors will fit in! But perhaps I will come across some small ones. I love ones with window panes!

Oh that Yes shampoo is all natural and I am just using it now. May get more when I start spending my credit which is nearly at $70 now. I thought after Christmas sales would be a good time.

I am going to get some service trees! Did you see that on one of my recent plant questions? Someone told me about them and they are beautiful with flowers but you get fruit too that taste like blueberries and I saw an online sale for 3 I may get if I don't find them local. Will be great fun.

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on November 24, 2015:

Hi Jackie,

Yes, that is unusual for a shampoo. I've always wondered if it is really necessary to "repeat" as they say, and it may be just so it will be used up faster to have to buy more.

Oh, I know you enjoyed your day today with Shane visiting and his birthday!

Hahaha ...yes, that is the great part about get older is that nothing much bothers us as it once would have when young.

I still think you should try to build a green house of sorts from old windows and doors, especially being you have so many plants.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving too.

Hugs

Jackie Lynnley from the beautiful south on November 24, 2015:

Strange it is the only shampoo I ever remember that only calls for one shampoo. I just always do it twice but will try it a few more times, just once; I liked it.

I end up giving bunches away; use to lots more with my daughter and all her kids...Shane's birthday today (15); he came by to supper and pick up his gift and we watch Mystery Gorillas of Shangrila. Had to go retake my eye test today and think I will have better luck this time. The doctor said no one could tell from looking but one of my eyes is higher than the other. Glad I didn't know it all these years. I might have been self conscious! Now; who cares!

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on November 23, 2015:

Hi Jackie,

7 shampoos! Wow, that is a lot to get the beautiful hair LOL. Yes, I used to use the Aussie hair products many years ago. Wow, girl, you have enough shampoo to last the rest of your life. You should open a beauty salon, as you already have all the products! Now, just because you have a coupon for something doesn't mean you must buy it. Hahaha. I tend to wait until I run out and then go and by something because I don't like the products to get too old by the time I get around to using them.

Yes, my hair grows fast too, and I have a hard time getting to the hairdressers to get a necessary cut. Right now it is way over due for a good cut.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

Jackie Lynnley from the beautiful south on November 22, 2015:

It says give it 7 shampoos to beautiful hair and it seems OK but I can't give any shampoo 7 tries in a row! I got a lot of Aussies and have to try some of those. I didn't use to like it but I hear others praising it and got bucks off plus points so got some different things by them. My hair has a natural wave too. I don't have to roll it unless I sleep on it bad and have to curl one side to match the other! lol

My hair is growing crazy fast all of a sudden and I am glad. I got almost scalped for that surgery and thought I'd be a year getting it back but now it seems to be.

Hugs! Have a quick week!

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on November 22, 2015:

Oh, well, you can do one too, Jackie, hahaha.

Wow, you have been earning those points up! You must have the most beautiful hair around with all of those shampoos smelling so good. Yes, tell me about the Yes product. I like to allow my hair to dry naturally too, so I do need a good product to put in to and leave in. I get so worn out drying my hair. When I don't blow dry it, it is really wavy, almost curly, and then as it dries it seems to grow and grow in thickness.

Hugs

Jackie Lynnley from the beautiful south on November 22, 2015:

I meant you should do the hub not me. lol

I do see things like that, that are so beautiful but you can't just buy everything pretty you see; but maybe I can now!

Have got my bonus points up to almost $70 at WG, mostly buying shampoos and hair stuff! Got something called Yes today and just used it. Combed out really good; will have to see how it does when it dries.

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on November 20, 2015:

Hi Jackie, Oh, you should do a green house or solarium of sorts, especially with all you grow. I saw some great ideas on Pinterest using old French doors and windows. I haven't done any projects here of late, so I am overdue. There are truly endless possibilities to recycle old doors and windows. You are very creative and have a great eye to make anything beautiful and unique.

Jackie Lynnley from the beautiful south on November 20, 2015:

Wow; a green house from windows? That would make a great hub!! I may think about doing that; I see old doors and windows all the time at yard sales and I guess that would really be better than plastic or such like Bill was talking about doing.

Hope I remember that idea when I am out at sales. I have always wanted a greenhouse. I passed up a bucket full of rosemary at Walmart this morning and wishing now I had gotten them but I do have some smaller ones growing on my porch like that I could bring in. They grow outside right through the winter but being new roots they might not be safe.

You do great hubs like this with such fun ideas; you really should do more.

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on November 18, 2015:

Hi Jackie, Thank you so much for revisiting this one, which reminded me of some others projects I wanted to do using old windows! I want to make a coffee table out of an old rectangular window. Plus, I've seen some really neat green houses made from old windows and doors, believe it or not. Yes, that is the easiest way to repurpose to just place a print behind the window or even better in your case, some of your photos ...maybe a particular theme for each frame. You are so kind to share again. I appreciate you. Hugs

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on November 18, 2015:

Hi Peggy, I'm terribly sorry that I missed your lovely comment from six months ago! Oh, yes, old doors are great for repurposing too. Your friend's idea sounds awesome inserting mirrors. Now, you have given me a great idea. You are so kind to pin and I really appreciate the share. Blessings

Jackie Lynnley from the beautiful south on November 18, 2015:

Stopping back by; forgot how much I loved it! I have one window like that up but I have another one somewhere I need to locate. They were both painted green with white specks even though I bought them at two different yardsales. Maybe they came from the factory that way? I love them though and using it over a painting is such a great idea I will just have to do that.

Sharing again!

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on May 16, 2015:

What creative ideas you have shown us in this hub regarding repurposing old windows. We have some friends who repurposed some old doors by inserting mirrors. It turned out great! The same could be done with windows if the glass is already missing. It gives the mirrors a nice framed look. Up votes and pinning to my decorating ideas board. Will also share.

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on May 15, 2015:

Hi RTalloni,

Wow, you are quick on the draw LOL. I went back to say thank you and saw you had linked this hub to your hub too. I really appreciate you!

I am so surprised about all loving the Man Garage makeover LOL. I thought men, especially, would come on here and fuss about it, but to my delight ...not so.

Enjoy your gardening tomorrow.

RTalloni on May 15, 2015:

Back to say I'm adding this to my hub on garden art because your garage makeover is such a great example of what repurposing can do for outdoor spaces.

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on February 28, 2015:

Hi peachpurple, so glad you came away with some creative ideas for your windows!

Hi KristianKikaso,

I appreciate your kind and most generous comments. Yes, I, too, love Van Gogh, especially "Starry Night" ...

Thank you for stopping by to read.

Blessings for a beautiful starry night wherever you are this night.

KristianKikaso on December 04, 2014:

Faith, you have a great ideas. With your ideas you turn something old into something quite beautiful and new. Every article and poem you wrote is magnificent. Van Gogh is my favourite painter. For me, the best picture from his work is "Starry Night Over the Rhone". ;)

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on December 02, 2014:

Hello Mel,

So nice to meet you! I am so glad you have stopped by my side of HP Town this day and that you love this idea. I appreciate your most enthusiastic comments. Yes, the hanging planters seem to be everyone's favorite.

Wow, thank you so much for the vote up all the way!

Blessings

Mel92114 on December 02, 2014:

I love this idea! Wow, you did an amazing job...they are absolutely gorgeous! I especially love the hanging planters. Voted all the way!

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on November 24, 2014:

Hi Availiasvision,

Thank you so much! I appreciate you stopping by to read. When I see something old, I always can picture it as another useful item and repurpose away. Yes, the windows are real windows, but not in the sense of actually ones that can be opened. Hmm, I am surprised my hubby has not figured out to actually put the windows in the shed, so that he can get more air flow, as we live in the deep South, and in the summer, the heat is unbearable. I am so glad he has that good-sized man shed, as I call it, for I only want our vehicles to go in the front garage of our actually home. I was surprised and delighted he did not mind me making his man shed not so plain looking. We love living in the small town/country now, especially after having horrible experiences in the city, in which I still work ...sigh (an hour commute, but it is worth it)!

I appreciate your positive comments and kind words here.

Jennifer Arnett from California on November 24, 2014:

You are so creative. I love the idea of re-purposing older items. It took me a second to realize that those windows on the shed were't really windows. The planter boxes are a beautiful touch. Your little home in the country is adorable!

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on November 23, 2014:

Hi Jackie,

Oh, those sound lovely, especially to reflect back what it is you have placed them in front of, plus more light too to bounce around the room. I love light and old window frames!

Enjoy!

Jackie Lynnley from the beautiful south on November 23, 2014:

Hi Nell,

I am glad you love my creations from old windows! What you do is just look at an object and think of what else it can be made into. It is a lot of fun, as the possibilities are endless. I go through spurts of creating these projects and it is usually in winter of all times LOL.

Nell Rose from England on August 13, 2014:

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on July 10, 2014:

Hello starstream,

I am so glad you enjoyed reading my article. I do hope you are able to find more great old windows to repurpose. You can even make a great coffee table out of one. The reuses are endless. Whatever you can picture in your mind ... you can make it!

Thank you so much for reading.

Hi Shyron,

Always a blessing when you stop by to read. I am glad you like my ideas here. They are very simple.

I appreciate the vote up and more.

Blessings always

Dreamer at heart from Northern California on July 09, 2014:

I enjoyed reading your article so much. A few years ago I had the chance to repurpose an old window frame. In all of the tornado of moving I failed to bring that wonderful weathered frame along. Your article rekindled that zest for finding another one to decorate. To reuse discarded items like this is commended.

Shyron E Shenko from Texas on July 08, 2014:

Faith, this is amazing ideas to reuse items decoratively.

Thumbs up, useful, awesome, interesting

Hi Linda,

Oh, I am so glad you found this hub to share with your artistic brother. There are so many creative projects one can do with old windows, just whatever your mind can come up with ... it is so much fun. I love creating new things out of old things. It is very green and plus cool! I am glad you like the window boxes on my husband's man garage. I was surprised he did not mind me "fixing up" his man garage lol. I appreciate the vote up and more and share! Oh, wow, Editor's Choice, really! Awesome, Linda ... You're the best ever to do such.

Have a great evening and rest of the week. Thank you for blessing me this day with your visit here.

Hi Dear Mary,

Oh, thank you so much for coming back and letting me know about your wonderful faux stain glass Dolphin that you had done over your front door of your old house! I am so glad you have it with you now! That makes me happy, and I know you too, dear Mary!

I know you do love looking at it, and I would too. I am just getting in after a long day, so I am going to head your way.

Thank you for sharing that with me and all here.

Hugs

Hi Marlene (lovedoctor)!

So great to see you here. I thought you had returned to HP a while back but I have not seen anything from you or heard from you in a bit. I do hope you are well. Yes, everything here is just peachy : )

I am so glad you like my repurposing of old windows, especially my husband's man garage. It is pretty spacious for a backyard garage. We have a large one too in the front of the house, but only the cars are allowed to park there and no man stuff lol!

I hope you are back to start writing again on HP, although, I have not been doing much of that myself here of late.

God bless you too, sweetie.

Linda Crist from Central Virginia on June 09, 2014:

I love this hub. Just a few days ago I suggested to my artistic brother that he might start using old windows for some of his art projects. I stumbled on your hub today and am sharing it with him. I particularly like your exterior "window boxes" with flowers. Fantastic work. Thank you for sharing your ideas. Voted up, across, and sharing too. Oh, and nominated for Editor's Choice too. :-)
