An Old Window

This window has been a bulletin board in my kitchen (the first 2 pictures) and this weekend I removed the cork and fabric and it now has a burlap back and star hanging on it (last 2 pictures). I am really liking the way it looks. Now I am trying to come up with something to hang above it. It seems I am never satisfied with my kitchen and am always changing something. It is so fun and I love doing it so what the heck! Hope you have a fun and safe Labor Day!

Hi Angie,
I really like each look you have used your old windows for! I have two {heavy} old windows that I am stumped on what to do with them. I could hardly wait to have them and now that I do, I am blank! They still have the old glass inside of them and I am worried about how heavy they are. Basically, when I hang them, they are up for good. I would love any ideas you may want to share. :o)
Happy Labor Day!
Sincerely ~ Tricia Anne

I think that looks sooo pretty! I love the black and white combo. that's a very versatile little window! It is fun to change things around, especially when it's stuff you already have!

Once again...just gorgeous! I have a window that I have been trying to come up with an idea of what to do with it. I like your idea of adding something to the front of it! Thank you for the inspiration!

Oh, I love how it looks now! Very pretty. I don't think it needs anything over it but I'm sure whatever you do will look good!

Hi Angie, and Happy Labor day. Hey I like the change too. I have a lot of white in my house but enjoy black too. Your window looks great this way. I also have been using burlap more...it is great. Hope you are having a wonderful day!

I love the bunny lamp you have in this picture and the rooster one in the other one. I have yet to find ones that I like online or in stores...I like yours...do you mind sharing where you got them from?

I have an old window frame and I love what you did with yours. Can you give a tutorial on how to apply the fabric? Thanks! Love your blog.

Wow, that is fabulous!! Love how it looks against your red wall.

Blondie said...

Wait. What? You turned an old window into a BULLETIN BOARD??

ohmygaaaah, I love it!

Now I need to go scrounge around and find an old window frame and totally steal this idea. I've been toying around with putting a bulletin board in the laundry room, specifically on the back door, after my recent (and cheap) transformation. Squeal!

YOU are awesome!! I'll post pics when I do this and link to you to give you all the bloggy credit and love!

I just stumbled upon your blog today and love your decor! I'm trying to find a chandelier like the one in your kitchen eating area. Did you buy yours? If so, can you tell me where you got it? Thanks so much!
