Old Windows as Decor

I love using old windows as decor in my home. They make the perfect backdrop for all sort of decorating ideas and can be all you need to fill up a wall. I love the texture and history they add to any space. The more layers of chippy paint they have the better and my favorites are the ones that have latches still attached.

See what I mean about the cool latches and chippy paint?

I added vinyl to this window in my boys bathroom. I love the size of the window and it fits perfectly on the wall over the toilet.

I started by using my Cricut to cut out the words in white contact paper and green vinyl.

Then I used a ruler to space out the words. I wasn’t too exact on the letters but they turned out really well.

It’s perfect as bathroom decor and a friendly reminder to the boys.

Here are a few more ideas I’ve used when decorating my windows.

As you can tell I love to change the look of the windows often. It’s easy to change them for any season, holiday, or whenever the mood strikes.

LOVE this Leanne! I think I need to find some windows like yours too. Where did you pick them up at?

I have never met a window I did not love. I like the way you have used the windows differently for each season. My favorite would have to be the crows!

Love the windows–all of them. Can you tell me where you found the black bird silhouettes? I’ve been looking for these with no luck at all. Thank you!
