Repurposed window project

We have been saving an inspiration picture for a project using reclaimed windows.  Right now, we happen to have a lot of reclaimed windows in just about every corner of every storage space we have available.

With a few hours set aside for projects today, we decided to make a cabinet with a reclaimed window as the door. Part of the fun and frustrating part of working with reclaimed materials is that you have to make it up as you go. There are no standard sizes or measurements. Our materials can look nothing like what is represented in the inspiration pieces.

We started with the window and build the cabinet to fit. After some thinking and planning and digging for materials, we are super excited about the finished product.

We can't wait to show this off next weekend at Vintage in the Valley.
