Friday Favorites {Inventory Inspiration}

We’re back with window panes as our feature today for Friday Favorites {Inventory Inspiration}.  When we had our windows replaced a few years ago, never would I have thought to myself “boy, I wish I could keep a few”.  We had some that were amazing, multi-paned, white chippy paint, they screamed rustic chic!  We recycled them and now feel the joys of having energy efficient windows, but I still think about a few of those old vintage panes.  While we only have a few in our inventory, you can find window panes at just about any home improvement “thrift store” such as the Rebuilding Center or Hippo Hardware or others.

A popular way to use old windows is to paint them with chalkboard paint, available at most hardware or craft stores and use them as a seating chart.  Shown here is a nifty hinged window.  {source: Heart Love Weddings}
