Old Window - New Purpose

One night on my way home, awhile ago, I passed by a house that had a bunch of windows in their front yard with a sign saying "free" next to them . . . at the time, I had NO idea what I was going to do with them . . . but I packed my 'lil SUV with as many windows as would fit in the back! When I showed them to Terry, he thought I'd fallen off my rocker! :o) I just new there was something crafty we could do with these . . . hmmm . . . old windows + paper + pictures = treasure! Jenny came over yesterday and we "played" with our windows!

Here's the one I did . . . Jenny is still trying to figure out how to e-mail pictures from her new phone! :o) Once she figures that out, I'll post what her window looks like. I used temporary adhesive, so I can change them out whenever I want. I put this in our dining room (for now) . . . but I think it looks pretty good on top of Grandma Betty's cabinet. I have one more picture to put on there + some embellishments . . . but didn't it turn out cute?

Hope you're having a great day! Thanks for stopping by my craft room!


  1. Wow Peggy what a really cute idea. I love the way it turned out. And to think I have two windows down stairs that I need to do something with.
    I can't wait to see how the other ones turned out. Keep us posted.
    Have a great week.

  2. That is TOO clever! Love it!
