Old Town Chicago Windows

Old Town Chicago Windows

Taken from an old bar, these Old Town Chicago Windows have seen a nice revamp and have been refurbished into something really nice. Great for using within the house or using as a bedroom mirror, these windows add a nice city touch to any apartment or dorm room. This is a great beginning project for those who are new to refurbishing old pieces. Just pick your favorite color of Krylon spray paint and get ready to create a decor piece you're sure to fall in love with.
