First, properly clean up the window by wiping down the glass and using a razor blade to scrape off old paint. You may also want to consider repainting the wood frames; the glass can be painted to create a hanging chalkboard or just keep the glass clear to create a picture frame. Fasten wall hanging hardware along the back of wood frame of the window to complete.

Old Window Shutters: Window shutters are a really unique and functional item that can be repurposed in a few ways. If you can find a large window shutter, repaint it and attach two together by hinges to create a room divider. For smaller shutters, try using the shutter as a magazine rack in a bathroom or office waiting room. The key is finding a window a shutter large enough for your project.

Happy hunting and have a blast upcycling items for your Montrose home!
