Upcycling Ideas for Your Old Windows

Makeshift Pergola

Do you have a garden that requires a feature that will stand out? With the help of basic framing, you can stack old frames together to make an innovative pergola that will surely dominate the entire space. This structure will be eye-catching once it is filled with crawling plants and vines. To give the frames a beautiful vibe, use different sizes of such and paint them using a variety of colors.

Miniature Greenhouse

Fitting the old frames of multiple windows together to form a box opens up a lot of possibilities, one of which is a mini greenhouse. It doesn’t have to take a lot of do-it-yourself skills to do this project, but once it’s done, you’ll be satisfied with the results.
