WOYWW

HAPPY WOYWW and only a little more time for the big reveal with all those ATC swaps
So here is my space this week I'm working on Window number 2 it's smaller then the 1st one but coming along I'll be working on it lots more this week to get it all done and ready put into the spot it belongs. Here is a look down on it
 Then here is a look Up on my desk the Lamp shade I made ages ago ... I love how they turn out but I honestly like to make windows a lot better.  So everything is stacked out of the way to give be space for my window
So here is the 1st one all done and put up so nice to look at and happy it's done

seeing we are doing all of these updates in our house we've found some really kewl little things in it 
who ever built it had some expensive taste for somethings cause in our sunroom we are in the middle of just updating it alittle when we found this hidden underneath all the boring wood paneling we've never seen this before
This is painted old safety glass with the wire inside it we've cleaned all the peeling paint off it and are going to keep it on one side and have wood paneling on the outside but this must have looked amazing in it's day seeing the house was built in the 1920's the DH is going to add in some molding and trims all around to make it look like it's never been touched.
This is just so kewl to have found

Happy Wed hugs Nikki
I'll pop around to as many peeps as I can 
and I'll be sharing all the ATC's when it's the big WOYWW# 6

  1. Wow, clever you with the stained glass creations. Stained glass/lead lighting is so (can't think of an appropriate word..tired), charming, evocative,character filled...You know what I mean. Good works!!

  2. Golly Nikki, that first window is gorgeous. And the second one is going to be beautiful once it is finished and hung. You are doing a fantastic job.

    Those windows are quite a find, especially if they were installed when the house was built. I had a safety glass installed in my back kitchen door in my last house, and it cost me a fortune. I can only imagine what it cost in 1920!

    Happy WOYWW from #1.

  7. I'm so jealous of the fact that you work with stained glass!! Of all the crafts yet to try, glass making is at the top of my list. I adore glass in all forms!!
    And how interesting to find that safety glass behind the panelling...I wonder why they put it there in the first place?

  12. My gosh, your restoration work is so admirable, methodical and careful..pretty sure most people would have smashed straight through that original glass! You're making progress with the window too-- oh Missus, lend us some of your patience!
