A friend bought this at my sale and it is now displayed on her front porch to Welcome all her friends and family.
There are two pieces attached at the bottom of the frame to display picture frames. They actually came out of a sewing machine table that I am redoing. They held spools of thread I think.
Its a flip-flop kind of day!!!
This was the first one I did. It is NOT reverse painted. I would recommend reverse painting so the glass can be cleaned from the front without harming the paint! We all learn the hard way dont we?

I have friends call me up and tell there is "junk" here and there and yonder. When two of my friends called at different times throughout the day to tell me that there were windows at the curb I knew they were meant for me. What to do with them? Reverse paint the glass and coordinate the frame, of course! Attach heavy gauge wire and hang! I have a machine that cuts letters and motifs so I used sticky paper to attach them to the front and turned it over to paint on the back. Remove the letters and there you have it.
