Happy Friday Everyone!
I never know what topic will create the most interest, but this recent post about creating a great entry table according to your style has really "taken off". This console table vignette was my first discussed entry display.
So for this post, I thought it would be fun to show all kinds of examples of Home Decor using old window panes.
I'll start of with one of my OWN projects.
I printed out 4 of my favorite pictures from Costco in the size of the window opening and taped them in. The other panels you can put scrapbook paper or fabric in. The entire project cost me under $17.00
What Holly did from Down to Earth Styling BLOWS my mind! - Take a look at how she turned her old window pane into a unique headboard!
I find this little hand made table with an old window pane ADORABLE and proves my point in the entry table post that sometimes you just need a console table to add character to a space (it doesn't HAVE to be practical, it just fills in an area of your home that needs some character!)
Another great way to use old window panes is just to add coat hooks! SO simple but really adds a nice touch. This could also be in a bathroom and towels could hang from it.
I also love how simple this idea is....just fill in the glass (or empty squares if they glass is removed!) with fun colored pieces of scrapbook paper. These days, even pieces of paper can definitely be considered art! What a great BIG piece of art for NOT a lot of money spent!
And for all of you wine drinkers......you can always keep all your corks and assemble your own homemade cork board!

And lastly, just because I LOVE EYE CANDY......here is a beautiful room full of character using an old antique arched window pane as a focal point.
Some of you are probably wondering where you can find these old windows. Honestly, I have found almost all of mine at yard sales! You can also go to glass/window replacement shops and a lot of times they have them just laying around and ready to be taken to the dumpster! From what I have heard, the east coast has a lot more of these old glass windows than the west coast. (due to so many older buildings) For those who don't mind paying a bit more, you can almost always find these windows at antique shops or flea markets.
I hope this post inspired those that like this style to find some old window panes and add them to your home decor. :-) Enjoy your weekend!
