Turn an Old Window into a Photo Display

Love when I find a good creative reuse project! Check out this old antique window that's been turned into a cute photo display.


Photographer Paige Balcer over on Shutter Sisters shows us how to make an old window into a photo display. Paige recycled an old 8-paned window found in her father's garage into a nice multi-window frame for her photographs.

You could easily adapt this for displaying other decorative designs, like a set of pretty patterns, prints, or bits of nature.

Wow, a beautiful project and one less window in a landfill (and in Paige's father's garage, in this case).

What a Great Idea! Very Cute!

Lumin... LuminousMom

My mom turned these into planters, by screwing a cerder planter to the front and spraying it all one color, then hanging them on the side of the house. Really cute!

I've done something similar with old cabinet doors, I turned them into magnet boards, pushpin boards, jewelry displays, and photo boards. All you have to do is tie ribbon through the holes left from the pull hardware (or drill two holes) and then knot them off and you can hang it anywhere! paint the center with magnet paint... its a magnet board! Decoupauge a piece of ceiling tile, or wrap it in fabric, and glue to the center and its a pushpin board, or just paint or decoupauge and use pushpins to display pictures.

That's a Great idea! I might have to do that with the old window paines I have in my garage.
