Old windows - what to do with them?

sunnnyNovember 17, 2009

I have 2 very old windows from my Great Grandafthers old home and although they are over 100 years old and a little rickety I'd like to use them somehow. We are in the process of designing house plans to build and I'd love to be able to include these somewhere. I've thought of rebuilding them and have a friend do some stained glass and use the windows as a frame (rebuilt of course) and place them over my claw foot tub window but I'm open to any other suggestions.

It's great to be able to come here for ideas.

What size are they, we have some old windows that are DL and we use as picture frames, but would not work with a very long window.

Check over on the trash to treasure forum and do a search "old window"
