It’s a trap; I walked right into it. We were at Home Depot and we were trying to find cording for the Roman Shades I’m working on. Later that night, I was almost done with the first shade; and then Ugh! I stapled the d@mn thing to the header board upside down. Anyway earlier at Home Depot, apparently the guys that work at the store cringe every time someone mentions…..”well, I saw this thing on Pinterest”. Yep, I did it, I walked right into the trap by saying that exact thing. There were looks that flashed across their faces, trying very hard to go unnoticed, but I noticed.
Why am I telling this story. I’m not sure! Oh, that’s right, because I saw this really great display case for all of my vintage barware, and Cathrineholm collection on Pinterest. How do you NOT love that site? The case is made out of chippy old vintage windows.
We bought a couple windows from an Etsy shop, they ended up being a little smaller than we anticipated. Even though we measured it all out. Jerry solved the issue by stepping in the middle of one of the windows and breaking the glass. Problem solved. We were off to find a couple more “new” windows.
This time around, we found a somewhat local vintage shop that had 3 windows. The price was better, and no shipping expenses required.
Prototype v1 was in the process of being built for the smaller windows, now broken. Prototype v2 is scheduled to start soon, and we thought of a few great improvements. Those windows, look at those gorgeous windows that we were able to pick up from Vintage Pieces From Heaven. I snapped a few pictures to share of her shop, very cute.
The finished display case of version two should be complete and posted in the next couple weeks. Keep your eyes peeled.
