When you are in the junking business, junk tends to find its way into your life. Such was the case recently when a friend from high school who now lives in Oklahoma saw that a friend of hers in our hometown was throwing out 1940's windows. My friend contacted me, a few more connections got involved and I ended up with a nice pile of old windows. I made an easy project with the first one.
The glass was broken in most of the windows. I added a thin piece of beadboard to the back of this, painted with chalkboard paint.
I left the window sash the color it was, a nice grey, and just sanded it a bit to get loose paint off.
I added three hooks that I painted white across the bottom.
I am happy when junk falls into my lap and I love giving it new life.
