So, you’ve finally completed your remodeling project, and the window and door replacement company are packing up their things to leave. Before they get your old doors and window frames into their truck for disposal, you might want to ask for them back. If these are wooden fixtures, then you’re essentially throwing away decent material for some unique home decoration or other opportunities.
Use your old window frames or French doors to create great accent pieces that will surely draw attention in any room. You can also add a few hooks on the muntins and mullions to let them double as coat hangers and give your home’s entrance hall some rustic feel.
If you have some handyman experience, you can use an old door as a great coffee table top that will surely be a topic of discussion when you have guests. Grind down the top to get a flat surface, and keep the original wood grain for a really authentic design.
Window frames work incredibly well as frames for hallway mirrors. Larger pieces can even be transformed into vanities for your bathroom that could complement sliding glass doors, although you may want to use an anti-moisture coating to keep the wood from getting damaged in that high-humidity setting.
Hinged windows can serve as great cabinet doors. Install some new glazing on old window grilles and use a small upcycled apple box to build the main cabinet body. Don’t forget to paint it to really give you that finished look.
