Even though fall is upon us, it’s feeling a little more like Spring here. I love quick and easy repurposed window projects, and they don’t get any easier than this.
I have a stash of windows that I keep outdoors so that they will become naturally weathered. This one is perhaps the most weathered. I had to dig it out of some mud and give it a thorough cleaning with the hose TWICE! That washed away some of the paint, but left just enough to make it perfectly charming and chippy!
To make this window shelf, I used two fence boards, one for the top ledge, and one for the bottom shelf.
I used pocket holes to attach the bottom shelf to the window. You can see some of the original black paint just hanging on.
It really looks great hanging on the fence, but would look equally pretty hanging on a wall displaying special mementos.
To temporarily style/stage it, I wrapped the plastic posts with some wide burlap ribbon, securing it with some double sticky tape.
I love projects that are so simple to bring together!
I have plenty of windows still weathering out by the shed, plus many more that are tucked away safely in the “window” department of my storage area.
Hoping to do some more window projects to take to Glendale next month.
