When the hubster and I visited Hoffman’s Barn Sale in the Hudson River Valley, I couldn’t get over their selection of used windows. They had huge collections of them all along the side of the barn, and they were crazy cheap. Yes, you’re reading that correctly. These windows above were only $7.00. Do you see all that sparkling treasure just sitting there and begging to be made beautiful?
I was super tempted to grab a bunch for a DIY art piece behind the couch, but since we’re already working on an art piece to hang there (including the frames to end all frames), I ended up letting them go. Still, I can’t help but daydream about all the things that could have been.
I love the chicken wire in place of glass and her beautiful DIY grapevine wreath.
I’m always a sucker for beach cottage themes. Seriously, heaven will have beach cottages, right?
Look how simple and pretty this headboard is! Also, her blog is beautiful and full of great inspiration.

Last, but definitely not least. This is my favorite of the bunch. I love the old window and white pumpkins on her fall mantle. And I’m loving her latest mantle here, too.
If you stumbled across a bunch of pretty old windows, what would you do with them?
