Inspiration Friday: Vintage Windows

{1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14}
 
My second post ever on this blog was about how I found some amazing windows at a couple of old barns on some land my dad owns and how I want to fix them up into something awesome:

 

Well that was back in October, and it quickly became too cold to work outside on them in the garage {excuses, excuses!} In the mean time, my grandmother commissioned me to fix some of them up specifically for her! They are in the process of building a new barn and would like a few of these for the interior. I’ve got them cleaned up, I have most of my supplies bought – now I just need to take the plunge and do it! {Which is only slightly intimidating since I technically have no idea what I’m doing, but o well} And so since I intend on getting down to business on these bad boys tomorrow, I thought I’d share some of the inspirations we drew from when working up the plans for these {and some that are just plain awesome!} You’ll have to wait and see what I actually do with them ๐Ÿ˜›

    I linked up an old post for you on how to make one of those windows into a chalkboard!! I love mine and it's so versatile too. ๐Ÿ™‚ Good luck with whatever you decide to do!

      Perfect!! Thanks Shannon ๐Ÿ™‚ I think we’ll probably end up doing a number of different things… but the chalkboard idea has always been one of my favorites ๐Ÿ™‚

    These are cute ideas! I love the idea of using them as picture frames especially or that coffee table top! That one is probably my favorite haha. Can't wait to see what you decide to do with them! All your readers are expecting something now, haha so there's some motivation maybe ๐Ÿ˜›

      hehe – yes, the coffee table one is awesome! {I will admit, there’s no way I’m attempting that one! lol} Yesterday was fairly nice out despite the wind, so I was pretty pumped to get going on these today… and it’s cold and rainy outside ๐Ÿ™ O well, I just need to suck it up and get out there! ๐Ÿ˜‰
