Repurposed Window Shelf


An old window gets new life as a shelf with a view.

Probably one of my easiest up-cycles... 

I began with an old solid window. I cleaned up the window and left the hardware on to be used as a hook to hang a wreath. 

I cut a board for the shelf the width of the window and attached it with wooden shelf brackets using glue and a nail gun.

The entire window, shelf, back, and front was painted with one of my favorite paints... Fusion Mineral Paint.

For this project I chose the color Casement... 

Quite appropriate for a window wouldn't you say?

Two large D Rings are attached to the back so the window can be hung on the wall or sit on the shelf. 

Fusion Mineral paint comes in a variety of colors. It needs little prep work before painting and needs no sealer. I repeat... no waxing!

The colors are amazing and the coverage is complete in one or 2 coats.  

I also love the metallics... the brushed steel is one of my favorites and was perfect making a galvanized steel look for this galvanized sign project or this beautiful metallic silver server.


Fusion Mineral Paint can be purchased at a store near you.
