Create this window box with an old window

I have 4 or 5 old windows just waiting in line to be repurposed! I always have these grand ideas when I bring home an old window, you know what I mean?

This one is on the smaller side and I’ve actually used it one other time. I popped a piece of foam board in the area where one of the panes is missing and created a temporary chalkboard:

See it was great having an old window just hanging around!


For this project I tapped a couple of cup hooks in to the bottom of the frame and added a window box basket.

Decide where you want the basket to hang

I love the chippy paint on the window. I’m sure I will keep it forever!

After adding the hooks, I added a little potting soil and my plants and hung the basket on the window.

This would look great hanging in the bathroom and instead of plants just add towels!
