I {heart} old windows!

One antique window 
+

Five little pegs 
+

A little paint, sandpaper and stain

An old watering can and twine

One sweet place to hang the kiddo's aprons!


I feel like I'm flaking on the whole "no pegboards promise". Sorry about that! I almost went to the hardware store and bought those big nails to use so I could stick true to my word, but I already had pegs and it would ruin the whole sweetness of doing this project for 2 bucks if I had to buy something!  I had to cave...

  1. I love, love, love this!!! Where did you find that old window? I go thrifting all of the time and have never come across such a fabulous window. I would have never thought to turn it into a pegboard for aprons, but it really works. Looooooove it! Now I am on the lookout for an old window.
