Old windows are kind of captivating, in their own way. They can't be used in a house because their frames are too battered, the glass is single-paned, they're often the wrong size, or they might have other problems. But who wants to just throw them out? Think of how much they've seen, and how many people have seen through them.
The ever-resourceful people of Hometalk have come up with some very cool ways to use old windows in various craft, home improvement, and gardening projects.
Blogger Somewhat Quirky of Grosse Point, Michigan needed a pergola. She had some old window frames. Problem solved! With help from some very basic framing, she tacked the frames together to make an innovative and intriguing pergola that will look smashing once it's covered in flowering vines. Her decision to use different sizes and paint colors gives the pergola a rustic, delightful feel; you can contact your own Minneapolis carpenter for help with a project like this.
