Recycling Old Windows


Old windows are often tossed out when homeowners remodel, so it's always nice to find a new use for them...like this coat/hat rack. Pegs were added to hold your tote, dog leash or hat!
The addition of the 2 shelves are perfect for keys or a favorite collection. We also have a larger 6 pane window with pegs available which is not pictured.


These old frames were made from old redwood trim which came out of an old home in Coronado. They are quite large and hold 8 x 10 photos.

This last piece was not made by us, but by the uber talented Ms. Rita Reade! Is there no end to this girls talent and energy?!! She solders, paints, and she's a wood worker! She makes beautiful bird houses and these greenhouses from old windows! The roof was cut off in this photo, but take my word for it. This piece was awesome, although it's sold. Maybe you can convince her to make another! Visit her blog and say hello...just CLICK HERE.
