Bedroom Windows

What is old, is new again! I've been holding onto these old windows for more years than I care to say, but at $5 each they were another steal and something I had to have, one of those "future" projects. It only took me xx years but this is what I've done with them. I made wall hangings out of them to match the new bedroom look.

I really love this one, and adds some shabby chic to the space. The lighting was too bad to get a whole bedroom photo but maybe tonight once the sun goes down, if so, I'll share that one tomorrow. I've also altered a dresser and I ended up painting the lamp shades with the wall paint. For the life of me, I could not figure out how to trace a pattern out of fabric to recover them. But this way works too. I still need to find a couple of throw rugs and maybe some small wall shelves to display photos but for the most part, it's done and I love it!
Thank you all for the kind comments on my $5 door, I'm so happy with it and I just love a bargain! Were back to spring like weather in my part of the Ozarks, so I started some spring cleaning today, just couldn't resist! Enjoy this last Monday of March and look for more bedroom blues tomorrow!


  1. Cute idea. I have a couple of old windows that I have been storing too. Thanks for the ideas!

  2. Oh my! Another great idea. Seriously Sue, you should be featured in a magazine somewhere. I just think you've got the decorating knack and it should be shared with the world. Thanks for sharing with us, at least. xxoo

  6. Nothing better than old windows, and I love what you did with yours! Just perfect!

    It was good to catch up on your blog today. So many wonderful things to see and hear about! Sorry I've been away for a while!


  7. I have a half dozen old windows from the Curbside Boutique that I found just a few months ago. Just haven't been as ambitious as you, maybe this will motivate me. Yours look terrific.
