Before I begin, you should know…I absolutely love repurposing everyday things!
As a child, growing up, I repurposed things all the time. Little did I know that years, and years later, I would be doing it for a living!
It all started when I left my job as a teacher and we moved back home to San Antonio. I knew I really didn’t want to go back to teaching, but I also couldn’t imagine sitting around the house all day doing nothing but housework. Blah!
So, I did what anyone else would do, and I bought 25 antique windows. OK, so maybe you wouldn’t do that, and quite honestly, I had no idea what I was going to do with them all. I’m pretty sure my family thought I was nuts. I mean, I thought I was nuts!
Eventually I decided I would pull out one window a day, work on it, and blog about it.
After two months, I completed all 25 which you can read about here.
Here are a few of my favorites…
I had so much fun repurposing those old windows that I started to think about other things I could repurpose.
By this time, I started painting furniture and The Rustic Pig became an official business.
