Replacement Windows and DIY Projects

Your new replacement windows look amazing on your Orange, CA home, not to mention that they are making your home more energy efficient, comfortable, and safe. However, now that you have all these new replacement windows, you need to do something with your old windows. Before you donate them, throw them away, or toss them on the curb, take a minute to think about all the creative things you can do with them. Need some inspiration? Use this list of old window DIY projects for ideas:  

  • Art Frame – Make your favorite painting pop by hanging it in front of an old window. This saves you money on buying a frame, and also gives the room the illusion of more natural light.  
  • Wreath Display – This option is quick and easy. Just hang an old window in your living room or family room and use it to display a wreath. This gives a lovely farmhouse feel, and adds a touch of greenery to the space.   
  • Jewelry Organizer – Take the glass out of the old window and install corkboard or a cushion. Then use hooks or even pushpins to secure jewelry into the spaces. Hang it up on your bedroom wall or lean it on top of your dresser as a functional and chic way to organize your jewelry.   
  • Chalkboard Window – Turn the old window into a communication center by painting the glass panes with chalkboard paint. Use chalk to write out your grocery lists, or messages for the family.   
  • Interesting Bathroom Mirrors – Remove the glass panes from the window frame and replace them with mirrors from your local craft store. Then hang your new mirror in the bathroom above the sink for practical use, or above the tub as decoration 
  • Mini Greenhouse – Take a few of the old windows and nail, screw or even glue them together to make a cube perfect for use as a mini greenhouse perfect for a starter vegetable garden or a way to test out your green thumb.   
  • Cabinet – Build your own over the toilet bathroom cabinet with your old windows. This project takes a bit more building experience, as you have to cut and nail boards to fit behind the old window and install a hinge to make the window the cabinet door. But once you’re done, it looks great and is functional too.   
  • Window Wall – Another more in-depth project, but its well worth it. Combine a few old windows to form a window wall you can roll in and out of a space for creative separation as needed. You can elegantly separate your dining room and kitchen when you have guests, or the living room and an office when you need to get work done.
