My Next Project




This is a window I saved from the garbage. My daughter was installing new windows in her home and she saved this for me.
The home she lives in was her grandmothers house.
So this window came from a house I lived in 35 years ago.
Just a little about the windows past.
I plan to sand it a little and paint it, then add photos
to the panes. If you have any other ideas, I would be willing
to consider doing something else with it.
Thanks for any help you can give me.

Your idea sounds better than anything I can think of at the moment. What a great memento of your childhood years! :-)

Love and hugs,

We did that once....but we took the glass out and replaced it with mirrors inside each pane. It was a beautiful accent piece that got a LOT of attention.

I love old windows. My mom and dad did one with old lace on the back...it was beautiful. I have one that I added a mirror to the back.

I did one of those for my brother! I stenciled on the back panes and then we hung it. It was really cool. If you would like a pic I am sure I could find one some where. Just email me!

I think it is pretty as is but it might be nice left rough with a row of votive candle holders across the bottom of it. The light would be pretty reflected in the glass.

Have fun with whatever you do! It is a really cool piece of memorabilia!

It's so much more meaningful when it "means" something. My niece made a headboard out of the old wide gate to the farm pasture. I always think about her running to open that gate so her dad could drive his truck through. It's the memories that make things truly special and your window will always offer you a view to remember...

My bests, Devonia
