Well, you can paint it and hang it on a fence, etc. or if the glass is still in it, you can paint the glass or mosaic it. Not to take away from this forum, but if you go over to the Garden Junk forum and type in windows, you should find a lot of ideas...we have some folks who have done beautiful work.

Oh, I guess I should have said I want it for the inside.

You can have mirrors put in place of the glass and build a small shelf across the bottom. We saw a six pane window with mirrors replacing the glass and the bottom three panes each had a painted flower pot with flowers. Very cute.

My DIL planned to use one to display all of her collection of old hankies ,some from grandmother & other relatives. The frame she had, had several panes so she wanted to fan some out & layer some(kind of like a quilt) I think I saw it finished & it was really nice. Son painted frame & then antiqued it by sanding in areas & put the hankies behind the glass & attached to the wall. Might have used 2 pieces of glass in each pane. Jan
