Wonderful windows

I realized something today….
I’m addicted to windows.

I had this addiction long before


It all started with a couple found in
an alley that I put photos of my kiddos in.


Then I made a chalkboard.


Later I made a table, which eventually became my kitchen table.

They keep finding places in my home,
which is a lovely, lovely thing.

What are you addicted to?

  1. I am addicted to MANY things! I love ironstone and rabbits! They make me happy! I try to stop getting them….but I can’t!

    I just found your blog and love it! I am a follower!

    Lou Cinda :)

  2. I love the way you’re using these windows, very creative!

  3. where do you find all these windows?

  4. I like the windows you used! I like how you used them. Currently I have a problem with bedding plants…went over my budget by 300 percent. Year round, I’d say it’s mirrors and then secondly it’s 1950′s furniture that I like to spraypaint all sort of colors depending on where it’s going to be placed.

  5. I really love that chalkboard window and I’m armed with a can of chalkboard paint! And I have stashed windows in the basement…. I was saving them to make a yard conservatory but the chalkboard would be so cute!!!!

  6. Love the table and your wall color is gorgeous.

  7. I really like the chalkboard :-) Great re-purposing for a window!!

  8. Gosh you just make the cutest things. I think that using the windows for a chalkboard is so dang cute! So is the table! No one else in the whole world has a table like that.

    All the best,
    Allison

  9. We have 2 stashed old windows. I’ve been trying to get my daughters to put them to some clever use (they are clever, I have the windows). So I forwarded this post to them with a hint, hint.

  10. you’re so creative! I love the chalkboard!

  11. If I found those windows, I’d be addicted to them, too! They’re awesome!!

  12. Sherry,
    I found them last Thanksgiving on a trip to my sister’s. That line of the post is a link to the story on my old blog.
    You can find them at a flea market or garage sale or even at a Habitat Restore, though.

  13. Hi Gina,
    I have just found you via Hooked on Houses! This post is giving me great ideas thanks for sharing it. I can tell your blog will be a fun one to follow. Have a nice weekend and stop by my site anytime. It is always nice to meet new friends. ~Cathy~

  14. Gina,
    Would you be kind enough to share what this wonderful paint color is? I love it.

  15. Cathy,
    Honestly, I never pick paint by chips. I either find it in the oops bin or at the Restore or I find a color I love and have it matched. In this instance, I took a box from Tiffany’s (a sweeeeet gift from my lovely hubby) and had it color matched. So my living room is actually Tiffany Box Blue. Here’s what the tag says:
    BLK 0 P 15+
    TBL O P 21
    GRN O P 51
    The base is CL 3011 Base 1
    I got it at a local paint store (my favorite store IN THE WORLD) and it’s Glidden paint, satin latex.

    Thanks for the wonderful comments!

  16. I think there are several windows like that in the basement of the house we’re buying … and I’m so excited! I’m imaginging pictures, or letting my kids finger paint on the panes! Or maybe put their handprints!

  17. Old windows are great! I have one hanging in my bathroom with mirror behind it-
    Thanks for sharing yours.

  18. I am addicted to baskets. I buy them for everything in every size!

  19. Birds and nests…I can’t leave them at the store when I find them. Well, I CAN, but I don’t want to. : )

    I can’t wait until we redo our windows so I can use my old ones for frames around the house! Yours look great!

  20. I would love to know how you made the table. That would be perfect for my office. Love your blog. Thanks!

  21. Beverly,
    The table base is simply four old windows put together in a square with 4 L-brackets. I will repost it so from my old blog so that everyone can see.

    Heathalee,
    I love bird nests, too! And birds, and crowns, and ribbon, and bees, and butterflies….the list could go on for DAYS!

  22. Gina,
    Thanks a bunch for sharing your secret paint recipe. Since it is Friday I think I am going to visit a few garage sales. For some strange reason I feel compelled to find a few old window frames!

  23. I am addicted to creative spaces. I keep adding them to different places in my home. I love your window projects…very inspiring.

  24. I’m in love with the chalkboard window! These are all great ways to recycle old windows!

  25. I really love the chalkboard window. I am going to have to do that one. Thanks so much for the idea!

  26. Those are wonderful – thanks for the inspiration!

  27. Love all your windows! That chalkboard one is lots of fun!

  28. Those are great! I have several windows around here that I want to hang…but how do you do it!?!?
    Mine are super heavy so I’m worried they’ll fall, what’s your secret?

  29. Sarah,
    To hang them on the wall, I take a short wood screw and put it on each side of the back, about an inch in and two inches down. I then use wire and thread it around both screws, making a wire hanger. Just make sure to put your nail into a stud on the wall to give it the support it needs.

    I’m so glad I’m not the only one excited about old windows!

  30. How fun! I think my daughter’s room could use a chalkboard window.

  31. I really love your chalkboard too and hope I can make one one day. Thanks for a beautiful post.

  32. Love love love all of it!!

    I have an old window we removed from our house (1924) but I haven’t figured out the perfect spot to hang it just yet… This is inspiring though!

  33. I love the chalkboard! I will have to do that one! Excellent idea!

  34. Love the chalkboard idea. Very cute. Now just need to find a window.
