I’ve been wanting to try out a project using an old window and wine corks for awhile now. I just didn’t know I’d use them together. I found this window at an antique store in Onset, MA for $3. It was terribly filthy so I gave it a nice wash and sanded some spots that needed it.
I used leftover fabric I had and stapled it onto the back so that the yellow shows through.
Using wine corks that I’ve collected and that my sister and parents have, I started playing around with some layouts. Once I found the one I liked best I got to work hot gluing them into place.
This was a really easy project and is perfect for our kitchen. We use the glass panes as a white board for notes and shopping lists. I didn’t have enough corks to complete the middle glass pane at the top but I’ve heard mixed reviews from people. Some say they like it glass, some say cover it with corks. Thoughts?
In due time, when I finish decorating the bare wall it’s hanging on, I’ll share photos of the complete display. For now though, it’s successfully serving it’s purpose!
