Have an old window kicking around without the glass panes? Looking for a “put it to use” project?

Put some cork panels behind instead of the glass and attach hanging hardware. You can go rustic and leave peeling paint on the wood or sand down and give a quick spray coat of primer and inexpensive colored paint. These are a fun way to incorporate communication and organization into your decor.

You could also cover the cork with fabric before you insert it into the frame. Just pick something that matches the color of the wood and fits in with your personal style. This has potential for several different decorating styles, depending on the color and fabric combination you choose. Bonus? Teenagers dig ‘em.
