POOR LITTLE TABLE

Wow, did it cool down! Not quite ready for this temp but it's better than 90! which is how hot it was when I picked this little item the other day.........
It had a broken top...which I tore off....and metal inside the back for some unknown reason......
I spray painted it black and then thought of a top for the little table....
you guessed it.......A WINDOW PANE!!!!!!
Now my collection is down to around 100!!!!!!
So I scraped it down and painted Crackle finish on it.....

this is all done in my kitchen mind you.....
Then I searched every where for some hinges until I found some in my husbands drawers....
not his pants!...........
in the mean time, my buddy Fred, was freaking out because of the strange black thing in the kitchen!!!!!!
he gets upset every time a new object is brought into his space!!!

He settled down after a while.......
back to the table....


































I attached the window pane to the top of the table and it looks really cool....and I can put lights and any other kind of objects into it......


I threw in some orange lights to see how it would look.....
at nite it glows orange through the panes......
Zelda likes...........

I think it turned out pretty good for trash!
HAPPY HALLOWEEN......

Oh man Patty, you know this is going to be a GIGANTIC hit, it is awesome. Don't know if you are serious about having so many more windows left, but holy cow,,,, I LOVE IT. The lights shining from within are so cool, and this would make the most awesome foyer table. I want one. Thank you SO MUCH for being right quick to linking up to my party, I am just giddy that it's already off to a GREAT start. Thanks again, and keep those panes coming, window panes that is, lol.

That is awesome, and the best use of the old window frame I have seen. Good for you. I may end up copying that if I ever find any furniture anywhere for cheap. Good job.
