Turn an old window into a cabinet

Buying new storage space for your home is a big investment. Whether you’re buying for your own benefit or with an eye towards selling your house, it’s nice to know there are ways to cut down on your expenses.

Do you need a new cabinet or cupboard? Why not make one with reclaimed windows?

Turning an old window into a DIY cabinet is very easy. Plus, it can be much cheaper than buying a new unit, especially if you happen to own an old window already or have extra timber from a previous project you can use.

So forget about buying a new cabinet – this DIY project is better and more interesting! It’s rustic and unique, making it a piece of furniture with character. Now that’s another conversation starter you can have at home. ;)

Is this going to be your next project?
