Repurpose Old Windows

DSCF5969

 

I was at a little hole-in-the-wall flea market a few years ago and came across three or four old house windows that I thought were awesome.  These old windows are not particularly difficult to find here in South Louisiana but asking prices for them can vary quite a bit.  I was fortunate enough to buy the windows for just five bucks a piece. These windows are not hard to find but a use for them can be.  With so much character I could not pass them up knowing a fun use would come shortly with just a little thought.  When I got home and showed them to my wife it became clear that these windows would live a beautiful second life as canvases for my wife’s paintings.  I really enjoy this painting in particular and love the symbolism it displays.  If you are an outdoor lover like me all you have to do is hang it on the wall and imagine that you have the ability to look out of your window into the beautiful Louisiana swamp.

This is really a very cheap project to complete, other than the $5 spent on the window itself, an inexpensive set multipack of acrylic paint and a decent set of paint brushes were the project’s only expenses.  Below are a few links to some affordable paint and brush sets that will get the job done.
