Projects We Love: Eclectically Vintage’s Chevron Antique Window Tray

August 30th, 2013

I always try to mix some vintage pieces into my home décor. Whether it’s an old medicine cabinet or a porcelain pitcher, I just love how these pieces instantly add a bit of charm and character to the room. That being said, I’m quite excited about the growing popularity and creativity surrounding repurposed vintage home décor.

In my most recent hunt for inspiring uses for vintage décor, I came across an interesting upcycling idea that is definitely worth a try. Kelly of Eclectically Vintage featured an awesome project on how to turn a detached antique window pane into an elegant chevron breakfast tray. Using some paint and patterning tape, Kelly decorated the glass pane with a beautiful chevron pattern. She then added cabinet handles to finish up this shabby chic piece of functional décor. Take a look!

There are tons of things you can do to repurpose old objects around the house. In line with reusing window frames, you can also use them to frame art on the walls, or mount them above a bed to serve as a headboard. Antique doors with a fresh coat of paint or an inset mirror are also great as headboards, as you can see:

With a bit of creativity, you can breathe new life into these forgotten pieces. Let us know: what’s your favorite repurposing project?
