upcycled window

you will need:
an old window
cabinet fixtures/hardware
screws & nailgun{or screwdriver}

i began by washing the window in warm soapy water because it had been sitting so long in a kind of warehouse. i then washed all the fixtures.

once its clean you can begin to decide what positions look best, group the types of hardware together for a more unified look. {ie two doorhandles, three hooks etc}

i kind of cheated & got my Dad to use his nailgun & screw the hardware on, because he knew exactly what size/type of nail & what took him 10 minutes would have taken me an hour.

then decorate. :) it would look just as beautiful drapped in pink scarves & glistening beads!!!

  4. Just like that, you were able to create something new from an old window! Isn’t it great? I’ll do this one soon!

  5. This is an amazing project! I like the fact that you used door knobs, handles, and bolts as hooks to go with the theme of the vintage window. It looks really awesome, plus it’s useful too! I can’t wait to try this out soon.

  6. I think that this project is really cool. Like Gabrielle, I like that you maintained a theme for the project by using door and window parts as hooks. This would be a good project to try out.
