Instead of turning an old window into a decorative mirror, I decided to smudge up the glass with grey acrylic paint. I then finger painted "milk" bottles in each pane. This went well with my country kitchen/vintage decor.

You will need and old window frame, flowers, and metal chain for hanging the window. Hang the old window by using a metal chain. Then attach flower boxes at the end of the frame.

Love it. The only thing that occurred to me was to place pictures of people looking out. Might be a bit freaky, though. LOL

Using an Old Window Frame

I was given this old frame, and decided to make it look realistic. I put a cut up poster behind the places where the panes were, and it looks like I am gazing out into a serene waterfall in the woods.

Our master bathroom had no windows and I wanted something in there that made me feel as though it did and looked pretty to match my floral theme. I like to free hand paint so I bought an old wooden 2 pane glass window which I bought at our local salvage place that recycles, it cost $2.

Keep an eye out for old windows with wood frames at yard sales. They can be made into rustic looking picture frames. Find pictures that are a little smaller than the window and use a matte, which can be found at any craft store, to give it a finished look.

I have found several old glass window panes. They are clean and without frames. I just cannot think of what to do with them. I would love to create something crafty with them; perhaps to sell. Any ideas?

At a craft fair last summer, one couple was selling them like hot cakes for bulletin boards. They had put cork board on the back of some, chicken wire with mini clothspins on some. They weren't even decorated. I have a four pane frame and plan on putting my collection of dried leaves in the panes, what I am going to mount them on I don't know yet.

I made a mirror with and old window pane. I scuffed up the side so different colors of paint would come through and placed a mirror behind it.
