Replacing Your Windows? Here are Some Ideas for the Old Ones

Windows add character to a house’s structure and natural light to the interior, but they don’t last forever and eventually need to be replaced. When their original use is over, it’s a waste to simply throw them away. What can they be used for then?  Bob Villa offers some great suggestions in this blog entry filled with vivid pictures and helpful links.

Relatively simple projects include turning old frames into mirrors and headboards. They can also be turned into picture frames which use clothes pins to hold photos on string strung between the outer edges. More complex options include turning them into character filled pieces of furniture. For the gardeners out there, old windows make unique and affordable materials to make a greenhouse like the one pictured in the article.
