Display Case from Old Windows (photo)

All I can claim from this project is the idea and I copied THAT from one I had seen! LOL DH made it for me from five old wooden windows that I had stored. He DID make additional storage underneath. I used that for storing large appliances, crock pots, etc.

Should have cleaned the kitchen table off first, before I made the photo, but hey, you guys understand, I betcha! LOL

What a great display case. I love it! Never seen anything like it. DH did a great job! I just bought 8 old windows Friday at a garage sale for a $1.00 ea. Have to show DH this project. Thanks for sharing.

You're sure welcome! The one that I saw in an antique shop was sitting on something like a table top and just had legs at the bottom. We needed more storage so enclosed the bottom. The "bead board" stuff we used was the most expensive part of the whole project. DH kids me that those cheap windows cost us a fortune! LOL (We had to buy two 4X4s and he cut them in half for the legs for it.) It had to be something pretty sturdy as that sucker is HEAVY! He used 1X4s to make a frame for the bottom.

It has a glass shelf inside in between the two sets of panes.

Hope this helps! Let us know if you get a cabinet. I'd love to see what it looks like.

Your DH was very generous and handy to do that for you. You should keep him.

5 windows? Do you mean four? Where is the fifth one---I'm curious if it is a corner cabinet or a square? I like it alot!

Nope - five - there's one on top! It's a square but just pushed up into a corner.

Des Arc Ya Ya,
Yes, please post pics. Thank's for sharing! That's just a great project. I love how you used the bead board. Better give DH another pat on the back.
