Upcycle Lead Glass Window

Submitted by LARMO on Sat, 03/30/2013 - 08:17

This was a recycle from a window replacement project on my 108 year old home. I removed the leaded glas window from the top of a 4.5 by 4.5 street facing window with a reciprocationg saw, attached a 1x4 pine board with trim screws on the ends and trim nails on the mid-portions. Painted it with satin black with a sweep of gold and pewter for a little dramatic effect, purchased a heavy weight mirror hanging plate and attached to the wall and window back. I'm thinking of backing it with a mirror to improve looks,

This is just lovely! What a wonderful use for a piece of history, it's now a one of a kind piece of art, and an instant heirloom!
