The Gardner Vintage Window

Before After
I have received some emails wanting to know what we did with the gi-norm-ous window.
Let me remind you it is

8 feet

by

6 feet.

And all of it is hanging behind and above our bed.
A neighbor helped Mike carry it up the stairs and then we took it from there.
And we only
dropped
it
once.
Yes I yelled out help!
Yes we both gathered a few slivers as it bounced down through our hands and onto the floor.
But Mike decided to try it himself.
And it worked.
The brackets caught.
And it was on the wall.
And we love it!
And I am so happy I sent the text message to make an offer on it.

This is another piece that will be with us for a very long time.

And there you have it.

The Gardner Vintage Window.

Happy Weekend!

Love it! My husband puts mirrors into vintage windows, and we hang them up for decorations.

Chelsea said...

Looks incredible! I think you should hang random bunches of dried flowers across the top.

Darcy from The I.Design Box said...

Creative! I like the way you created a focal wall by reusing the big window frame. A little inspired idea... add black and white or sepia photos in a few of the openings (a great way to showcase family pics). Love it!
