How about turning your old window into a picture display for your wall? You can use small picture frames all around the window frame to display family photographs beautifully.
Weaving faux foliage along the frame will give your room a natural green appearance. Find some kind of green leafy foliage such as grapevine or ivy that could stick to the frame. The green leaves will create relaxed ambience in the room.
Hanging small vases and potted plants creates more space around the house. The window frame is also a great place to start a herb garden. Herbs don’t require a lot of space so using the window frame is perfect for this project. Plus the greenery will create a fresh natural look.
Installing a black board along the frame is a creative way to leave notes or draw patterns. You can draw chalk floral patterns and a month later you could draw geometric patterns. Whatever you fancy. Or if this window is in the kitchen you could list of chores or things to do. Not only is it a neater list but it also decorates the window.

A window sill works the best as a shelf for the inside of your house. You can place a pretty ornament at your window but you will also have a miniature shelf to store other decorations that don’t have a place.
A unique key hanger is another item you could turn the frame into. This might require a bit more handy work but the results will look stunning and unique.
Lastly, you could create a pot rack out of this window frame. Glue some hooks onto the wood and let it dry. After it is completely dry you can start saving space in your drawers by hanging up those pots. If you want to change the color of the frame, make sure you paint it before you stick the hooks.
