Trash to Treasure: Old Windows and Doors

I am a bit fond of using old windows, doors, shutters, drawers, and other items and creating them into something new.  Some other day soon I plan to show you some ways that we have done this in our home.  Before I do though, I wanted to share this bit of information with you. 

RoboJunker has a page with lots of pictures of ways to reuse vintage windows and doors.  I thought some of them were quite creative.

Enjoy!

Thanks to Cherry Hill Cottage for the link.

    What brand (product) did you use? Your results look great! I have the same problem. A house full of brass fixtures. Has it held up?

    Yes, it has held up and we are very pleased with the results. I think we used the Krylon brand. It was about $6 for the can of paint.

    By the way, I think you commented on the wrong post. The post about the brass fixtures is here:
