Well, HELLO!! It’s been the craziest week getting ready for summer break, but I had a little time today so I thought I would share with you one of my favorite decorating tips/tricks. I call it a trick because it’s pretty much my go to piece of decor. What am I referring to?? WINDOWS!!! OH, how I love decorating with windows! Why? Well, here are a few reasons why I love decorating with them:
- They are CHEAP, especially when you are on a budget
- They are easy to find in different shapes and sizes
- They add instant character and charm to your space
- You can add items to them easily like wreaths, flowers, or signs
- The possibilities are endless if you just get creative
Like I said, I love them! So, here are a few ways I use them in my home.
IN A COLLAGE WALL
My entry way includes other salvaged items as you can see and of course a window is part of my collage wall. This wall cost me about $50 for the shutter, window, and old bed headboard. I also have a mirror that looks like a window, which I love!!
ON A WALL WITH A SHELF
I found this window for $5 at a yard sale. Umm, that is my kind of decorating!! I found a board that just happened to fit the size of my window and I added brackets to it. I added the shelf to the top of my window to give the window a little something extra. I love the large size of it too and how easy it is to add signs or wreaths to the middle of it. This added so much character to my boring hallway.
AS A ROOM DIVIDER
This window might be my favorite one of all! It was also one of my $5 yard sale windows. I added this table behind my couch and thought it needed a little something to it. I had the idea of hanging the window from the ceiling and love how it turned out! It’s a great room divider because it is see through so it still lets light in and allows you to see the other room while adding a fun touch.
Here is the same window from the opposite side.
JUST FOR DECOR
This one is simple. I love how they look just hanging by their self or propped up as a background on top of a piece of furniture. In my dining room, I found two matching ones that I put on each side of my window. I also used it as a backdrop and filler in my vignette on top of my hutch. Of course they are both white and chippy!!
WITH A WREATH
I have this window in my living room behind my chair. I always have a wreath in the middle of this one. I change it out every new season and holiday. A window behind a wreath adds instant character to your wreath, and it’s a super easy way to decorate.
Well, here are my 5 ideas to get you started. The possibilities are endless! Get creative. You don’t have to have a lot of money to add a lot of character to your home. Hopefully, this helped you see how you can incorporate them into your house too.
I hope you enjoyed my post! Now, go out and get you some and share with me how you use them in your home too!!
