10 ideas for Upcycling Old Windows

Upcycling old windows

Nearly all of the homes in Buffalo are super old. I like to think of them as antiques! Sounds better ;)  Our house was built in the 40s. There are so many homes with great character in our area. So this week, I scored BIG! I was driving to Home Depot (my other home!) and I saw a home that was getting all new windows. I flipped a U-ey and asked the window guys what they were doing with the old ones.  One of the men looked at me funny and said “Um, we throw them away…” I immediately asked if I could have some. He said it was fine as long as I double check with his boss.  Boss said yes and I scored SEVEN free adorable windows! They’re all rustic and chippy and beautiful! YAY! 

This got me thinking, what on Earth am I going to do with them all?? I mean, my 7 new windows brings my total to 10 antique windows I have lying around! I thought it’d be fun to round up some ideas for old windows in case you have some lying around like I do.
