This is how it looks now. The picture doesnt really capture it with the light shining through, but you get the basic idea.

The before picture.
I removed the top, because I wanted to make it a seperate shelf, but it had so many rusty nails sticking out of it that I had to throw it away. I tried to remove them, but they ended up splitting the wood anyway

I found this frame at the auction months ago. It sat on my porch for a long time, and then I tried to sell it but the people who showed interest ended up not taking it. I've seen some interesting glass mosaics lately, and I wanted to try one, so here it is.

It's quite large, the entire frame is approx. 3 feet wide. The frame (with the glass panel) were free, and I bought the little glass stones at the dollar store, along with many tubes of super glue.
