Sometimes it can be difficult to just throw things away…especially if they were expensive to begin with. What’s the best solution to replace the old without feeling like you’ve missed out on its full potential? The answer is simple: Good old fashioned repurposing.
Imagine you’re remodeling your home and you’re replacing those old windows with newer, sturdier ones. Perhaps you’re having Danmer’s genuine American made Plantation Shutters designed and installed in your new windows. So what can you do with the original window materials that you’re replacing? Here are a few ideas:
Frames: Many window frames can be repainted and re-purposed as picture frames, or to frame artwork, certificates, or even mirrors!
Headboards: Even large/old windows can add an artistic flavor when displayed behind your bed… think old world decor!
Framed info boards: A good frame, sans glass, can contain a small bulletin board or dry erase board, while adding an essence of style and flair in your home office!
Art displays: Glass panes themselves can easily become works of art when coated with a little paint or other arts & crafts materials of your choice.
Room divider: The more windows you have to work with, the more you can do! The frames of multiple windows can be combined to make an interesting, edgy room divider. It’s sure to be a conversation starter!
Regardless of how you handle unused windows and frames, make sure the new ones are energy efficient, aesthetically pleasing, and made by American craftsman for exceptional quality! Visit Danmer’s website to learn more: http://danmer.com/
