I'm all about repurposing, rescuing, refinishing, renewing, re-everything BUT I would not do anything to something this beautiful - even if it did not fit into my decor or suit my personality. I would rather see this set sold to someone who will love and cherish it as it is. Use the money to rescue something that you can transform into something beautiful. PLEASE!!! :-)

Re: IT'S A WRAP!

Very, very nice! Was this all one piece? If it wasn't you did a great job matching it up so the joins don't show!

Re: angels inspired by ya'll

These are so clever - and lovely!

Re: part of dollhouse?

I like the shelf idea as well - with a picture tucked behind the window panes, of course! The floor on the back has a lot of possibilities also.

Re: Storm Window Display Shelf

I have some shelves made from some old windows in my store. I use some old pop bottle crates for "legs" and I have a pair of small shelves (two salvaged and repainted rectangular wooden boxes with a divider,basically) sandwiched between the windows on either side. (My store is snowed in for the season, otherwise I would snap a photo for you.)

You could use more pop or other wooden crates instead of the shelves between the windows. All are easily assembled and disassembled. You could even use the crates for packing your merchandise inside for the trip to and from the shows.

The caulking on old windows is often crumbly so you may want to recaulk them before carting them around or setting anything on them for display.
