There’s something special about old windows. They have such character and are a great starting point for a project. Here’s a few of the ones I’ve repurposed.Even if the glass is broken they are great to use. I make lots of chalk boards with them.When they are sectioned you can do some fun stuff.And if you can’t decide, do both!I love doing special orders for weddings!The Holidays are a great time to use old windows!So you’ll see me jumping for joy whenever I run across some great old windows on the curb. Broken glass, old chalking, rusty nails – it all just makes them more interesting!

Every bottle has a story. What was its purpose? How old is it? What home did it reside in? Altering these bottles adds to the story, giving each a message or theme to share.
