Upcycle Old Windows: Shabby Chic Home Decor


I am a believer in upcycling, reusing, and repurposing and that is one of the reasons I love the idea of Old Window Art! I've seen old window art using etching cream to make pretty scenes, or just using the frame to attach gardening implements to make a 3-dimensional art piece. Old Window Art is really only limited by the imagination! 
This shabby, old window art piece hangs in my kitchen. (By the way, I say shabby and old in a good way! ) I did not paint it myself; I happened across this one some years ago and snatched it up (I sunflowers). Lately, it has inspired me and I will be on the prowl through local flea markets, yard sales, and salvage shops this spring for old windows for my own creative outlet!
