You, my fellow salvage junkies, never cease to amaze me with your creativity. Take Leslie Geesaman, whose window-turned-picture-frame is shown below.

Pained at the thought of a charming wood double-hung ending up in a landfill, Leslie’s contractor husband lugged the window home from a job site. And in true TOH fashion, Leslie put it to good reuse. Her idea: Mount photos behind the wavy-glass divided lights and hang the sashes side by side on the wall.

My sister-in-law is planning on doing this for her stairway and I can’t wait to see it! You can find these old windows in antique shops or flea markets at very reasonable prices. If you are in the Twin Cities area, email me and I will give you the name of a couple shops I know that sell them!
