10_uses_for_old_windows

Last week I replaced our kitchen window with a new casement window. It’s beautiful and I’m in love. But, I feel bad for the old window.

The window is sitting neglected and abandoned beside our house. Whenever I walk by, it begs me for a transformation. I’m thinking I could make any one of these ideas with the old window!

    Our old windows were aluminum sliders and totally ugly. Also replaced way before we were into doing this kind of thing, or even would have thought of it. Whenever I find windows like yours the price is astronomical. Jealous!!!

    I have a few old wooden windows I would like to mount pictures to the back of the glass. What’s the best way to mount them?

    Thank you!

      Diane, sorry for the delayed reply. I mounted the photos to mat board using double stick tape. Then pressed the mat board into the back of the window. If the mat board is cut exactly to size, it should be able to stay after being crammed into the corners. If not, use a little dot of clear caulk to hold it in place.
