We have those ugly slide windows. I've always loved the look of vintage sashes...the grungier the better. Love the chippy painted wood, old hardware, and misty look of the glass. I've had four that are similar, and wanted to put them in the dining room windows. They only cover half of the window, but I like the way it adds character to each one.
When I cleaned them up...I left the grunge in the corners...gives them an old shabby shed kind of look.
For the two windows in the guest room, I added the three panel sashes. It looks cute with the vintage iron bed, and other pieces I've decorated with.
For the big window in the living room, I used two... four paned sashes. I can sit here at the computer, blogging, and look out my new/old/old window. This morning a lone seagull decided to leave a little something on the window....nice. I guess that's a perk with living on the water.
My whole family thinks I've gone crazy with the whole "white" look in here. Then adding the sashes really iced the cake. My son in laws said they would have thrown the things in the trash pile! That's okay.....I would have picked them OUT of a trash pile.
What's that old saying??? to each, his own?
I sincerely hope that everyone of you enjoyed the festivities over the 4th of July weekend.
I was blessed beyond words.
