Our Very Own Vintage Window

{I told you I would share when our very own window was done...}


Beautiful Windows



Like These:



 Destined for a landfill.

Just doesn't seem right, does it?

These beautiful windows have so much history. 

They still have life left in them.

Too much to just be wasted, broken and forgotten.

So we rescued them.

And we started giving them new life and new homes.

One by One.

You may have seen one or two of them before, cleaned up and ready for their new families.

This one's part of Our Family now:





Painted in a soft green with crisp white lettering.
Just needs a little distressing.  :)

WE ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. 


I wonder what all our other orphan windows will become?

  1. Now, that is cool! At one time, I was looking for an old window to make into a coffee table top. Problem was, I couldn't find even one!

  12. Wow! You've got lots of old windows waiting to be transformed, huh? Hehe! It's been almost two years now, and I'm sure those recycled windows already have a new place in their house. Anyway, I’ll bookmark your post and use it as inspiration for my soon-to-be removed windows. Let the window replacement and recycling begin! Thanks for the share! :)
