Hey, wanna see something else we found in our garage attic?
I’m not in love with these photos, but I am in love with this window. Chris was a little grossed out that I wanted to bring it inside, but how could I not? Just 15 or 16 passes with a rag and some soapy water and we were good to go! Spidies and spidey webs are no match for a girl with an idea that involves her house.
I actually didn’t really know what to do with it, but I knew I wanted to look at it all the time, so I stuck it in the dining room for now with a little twine garland. It works.
We think this may have originally been in the back wall of our garage, which is now covered up and a solid wall. One day, when we build our new 2 car garage/workshop, we plan to keep our old garage as a little outdoor entertaining building and install french doors off the back out to a deck over-looking the creek. Oh, big plans.
For now, I’m just enjoying my cute window.
