Hanging An Old Window From The Fence

Hello Everyone, I hope you are all enjoying a fun and relaxing Labor Day today! 
I want to share a little something with you I did this weekend.

Earlier this summer I found an old window at one of my favorite little country stores, 
it's been sitting on the deck for several weeks but I finally figured out where to put it up.

 We still haven't landscaped the backyard, so we stare a at a lot
 of bare fence when looking out the back windows. 
I had plans to plant some trees and shrubs this summer, 
but what do you know...that didn't happen!

So, at least this little window makes a little corner of the 
backyard look a little more cozy!

I bought the galvanized letters at Hobby Lobby and used plastic 
hooks from COMMAND to hold the letters onto the glass.

I decided to use rope to hang the window from the fence so I can 
easily move it  when I feel like it.

Well, maybe next Spring I will get around to planting 
some pretty trees and flowers along the fence-line. I hope you like 
this idea, there are so many things you can do with old windows. 

For more inspiration on how to decorate with old windows, 
please check out this previous blog post of mine:

Thanks for coming to visit!

  1. This is such a good idea, and perfect for Autumn as the garden starts to wilt and die. I will add this to my list of Autumn jobs! Take care x

  2. That's a cute idea. I like how you hung it from rope and added the letters to it. That gives it more personality. I bet Fall will be there before you know it since you live in the PNW! Fall is a good time to plant flowers and trees too, ya know!

  3. Looks great. Love that old vintage window. Perfect place above your bench on the fence. Very cozy indeed. Hope your Labor Day week end was great. Happy New Week.

  4. Love it, especially the grow letters... but you know that isn't going to happen unless you plant something! ;o) Ha Ha... well unless it's weeds!


  5. Wat leuk het oude raam.
    Vind ik ook zo leuk.
    En bomen hoe ik ook van.

  14. What a fabulous repurpose of an old window! It sure does add a nice touch to a plain fence!! Great idea! The grow sign is a perfect touch also!

    Thank you so much for sharing your fabulous project over at Waste Not Wednesday!

  15. So cute!

    Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  16. I just love your home and this space! I always feel like I could just jump through the screen and hang out :)

  17. Sorry you didn't get around to planting but the little window makes a huge difference and I'm sure those galvanized "grow" letters will help

  18. Such a clever idea with the window frame, I need to hunt for these possibly at yard sales. So many possibilities for use inside and outside. Hum how about over a mantel at Christmas, with decorations and lights.
    Hope you have a great week!

  19. I love old windows. This old window looks great in your yard.

  20. What a lovely old window display. I love it and so happy you shared at Dishing it and Digging it link party. Your awesome!

  21. Christine it looks really cute and adds so much interest to an otherwise neutral fence. I also like how you have added the letters. Pinning and tweeting.
