Window wall

dian57August 17, 2005

I needed a visual divider between my patio and a small daylily/hosta garden. I thought this was a good solution to keep the dog and visiting young children from walking off the patio into the garden. The window came right out of someones trash pile and the color is matched to the house.

That looks good. My sister-in-law has a cafe, and she took some old windows and hung them from the ceiling with white chains and placed wreaths or vines on them and they look great!!

Terrific -- I was recently given some old windows --- have them stored in the barn --- loved the divider and need one similarly placed to yours -- hope you don't mind if I "snatch" the idea. Also really like what Coppertop shared -- had been trying to figure out how to use a window
as a headboard -- can suspend and add a grapevine wreath and some dried pieces --- it will look terrific --- thanks for the ideas.

Wow! a headboard? What a cool idea!! That should look very gardeny shabby chic. send a pic if you can.

I love it! Hmmm, a trip out to the reuse garage at the local county landfill looks to be in order the first of next week..I've been wanting to do the headboard idea, but our bedroom is done in a hunting cabin theme and haven't quite figured out how to carry it off..

So, do you have the glass in there, or not. I can't tell by the picture.

Love the idea, might copy it too?

OklaMoni--nope, no glass. I worry about little ones tripping and getting hurt. The iron crosses were in the $1 clearance pile at Michael's and the balls are just styrofoam with pebbles mosaiced to. I need to add more chain so the balls fall closer to the center of the panes.

No need to ask to use the idea, I figure the more the merrier! And post your version if you decide to make one.

What a great idea. I have an old window screen from my grandma's house I don't know what to do with it.

It really looks neat! Don't you love it when you can use something that otherwise would have been thrown away to make something attractive AND useful!? Good job!
