A simple way to add color, charm and character to your decorating is to use a repurposed window. I knew I wanted a place in my guest bedroom for my guests to hang their towels or other belongs, so I decided that using an old window would be the perfect item.

I have a stash of old windows in my garage, I buy them at garage sales or find them on the side of the road. I mainly use them to makeover and sell at the shop. I use a few in my own home to decorate and knew that I wanted to use one in my guest bedroom makeover.
I think this one was a freebie! I started by cleaning it up and removing all the old paint that was on the glass. I always laugh that people leave the paint on a window pane even though it is very easy to remove after you paint.
I painted the frame using Country Chic Paint in Full Bloom, this was a limited edition color that I used as my accent color in my guest bedroom.
I found some great stencils at my local craft store and used the Americana Multi-Surface paint in silver metallic. This was the same paint that I used to stencil on my Thrift store lamp makeover that is in this room as well.
Add a few hooks and you have a great wall decor coat hook for your guests to use. I love the saying and I thought this would be the perfect quote to use in this space.
It’s the simple touches that make your guests feel welcome in your home. Here are a few other windows that I have made.
