Repurposing old window weights
I saved 10 old iron(?) window weights when we replaced the windows in our 100+ year-old house. 4 are slightly slimmer and lighter and 6 are heavier. Each has a hole through one end where the rope passed thru. All are still rusty. I haven't tried to do anything with them so I don't know how they'll clean up. I'm assuming they'll have to be painted. Any ideas? Anyone ever done any projects with these? Did you like the results?
