I heart old windows…

back in the late 90’s, I bought my first old oak windows at a salvage store for just $40.   they hung inside larger windows.

this is the same window, my husband built it into a wall cabinet for my guest bedroom

we put an old window in our shed door. .


and another on the side

my husband built a closet in a bedroom and added an old leaded window at the top.  it made a great night light.


last year I added a vinyl chandy to this chippy pink window and put it in the garden.



 I can’t decide if I want to make this one into a large chalkboard or save it for a garden shed that my husband will build this spring.  either way, I’m going to love it.

have a great weekend!


  1. Oh, I heart old windows, too! You have quite a collection and your husband does beautiful work incorporating them into your home. Love your newest find and can hardly wait to see what you do with it!

  2. I am totally in love with your shed and adore the windows with thingies in it!!!!! Gorgeous!!!

  3. Oh my goodness, I just LOVE what you do with "old" stuff Lynn. I wish I had the gift to see something like the window you just bought and the possibilities of what it could be, but alas, I don't. I can't wait to see what YOU envision it to be!!!

  4. Quite the collection of windows! (= LOVE what you've done with them!!! (=

  5. I love what you (and your hubby) do with your collection of old windows, Lynn! I especially love that old leaded window above the closet!!! :)

  6. You have such great style Lynn! I love, love, the window above the closet. It looks so amazing there!

  7. I love windows, too! Mine aren't as interesting as yours, though! Lookin' good, Lynn!

  8. I love old windows too and you've found some FAB ones!

  9. I am crazy over that window over the closet...what a brillant idea! I have an old cupboard door with stain glass that I move everywhere I go!

  10. Oh, love, love these gorgeous windows. :)

  11. I love your windows! That little shed is so cute and I love the transom over the closet door!


  12. The one that I love best is the 1st photo. I, too, am in love with vintage stuff. It’s beautiful, and it also looks inviting, especially since it lets light enter the room. If I were the owner of that window, I will put a couch right below it, so I can just sit down there and watch what's happening outside through my beautiful window.
