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 😛

So what do you guys think? Any of these ideas rock your socks of?? & are there any other awesome ideas I should know about? O and if anyone has done this before and would like to share some tips with me, that would be great too 🙂

Vintage Windows

Lately I’ve been inspired by many of the Vintagy windows I’ve been seing on Pinterest and Etsy, so I wanted some of my own to work on. I tried to find ones on eBay or locally that hadn’t been turned into projects yet, but they were SO expensive!

I happened to remember that my dad recently bought some land with some old barns on it & asked if he knew if any old windows were out there… he told me to just go out and look – so look we did! I am thrilled with the find – we ended up with 8 windows total of varying shapes and sizes. With everything we have going on right now it may be a while before I can get to them all, but here’s what I have to work with…

we popped out the outer 2 windows of Barn 2 {the middle one was stuck!}
These babies just barely fit in our car
