3 Creative Projects for Your Old Windows, Green, Ohio

Upgrading your windows provides many benefits ranging from improved curb appeal to a boost in energy efficiency. Don’t throw away those old panes just yet, however! There are many fun and interesting creations you can make with them. Repurpose your old windows in any of the ways below to add cool new features around your house.

How to Upcycle Old Windows

1. Build a Potting Shed

Old windows are perfect for potting sheds or greenhouses because they let in a lot of light. If you’re handy, you can build a small shed and use those panes for the windows and ceiling. You’ll have the perfect greenhouse to grow some new plants. The shed will also be a cute addition to your yard. Paint the frames to give your shed a little extra pop of color.

2. Create Vintage Décor

windowsOld window panes are trending in vintage décor. They can be used as a picture frame; just attach your photograph to the back side of the glass and hang it up. Create a mirror by replacing the transparent glass with mirror ones. Make a fun flower box by hanging the window pane over a flower box and filling it with colorful blooms.

3. Build a Table

The shape and strength of the glass make it a perfect choice for a table. All you’ll need to do is attach some legs around the corners of the window pane. If you want a larger table, you can even attach multiple windows together. The result is a functional piece of furniture for either indoor or outdoor use with a lot of charm to it.
