Found 17 old factory warehouse metal windows at the scrap yard yesterday..they have a patent date of 1922 on the retractable screens that i got with them. And all the glass is there and not one pane is broken..thats the crazy part as they were thrown off a truck. Not sure what to do with them but you know me,  I can't pass up good vintage junk, and i only had to pay $2 each because they had glass in them.

I'm needing to build a long garage width building to block out my neighbor's eyesore and I thought they might look good all in a row in a yellow building on concrete pilasters with these black windows and a tin roof.

I love the table, screen ideas but with such a grouping it would be so cool to do a sitting/potting shed! All framed in with paned glass. Your little nook, home away from home... Oh! I am totally wishing I had them! Do SHARE your creations! Posted: 12:23 am on April 30th

SpacyTracy writes: I too love old windows, wood or metal. I make all sorts of stuff with old wood windows and sell them at the local farmers market. Coldframes, mini conservatories, mirrors, picture fames, chalkboards,tables, and special order anything. Let us know what you do with them.Thanks for sharing. Posted: 8:12 pm on January 31st
Junk_Sophisticate writes: The whole metal aspect is the best part. I know we all have our stash of wood windows but the metal takes it over the top! I think I'd be using the frame, sandblasted or stripped, for a couple of projects myself. Awesome deal!
