I found some old Blue prints scrunched up in a dresser we bought to makeover. See more at www.facebook.com/gypsybarn. After I opened them, had them scanned at a high resolution, pulled
them into a digital imaging program and fixed all the rips and creases, I enhanced the font to make them readable again and had them printed to size to fit these p;d windows that fantastically enough, we salvaged from an old Boat house a few months back. So now the prints on how to build this old boat, can live on for many many more years to come!
Since you guys appreciated the coffee table from an old door that my husband built for me, I thought you'd love to see what he can do with old windows, too! Over the years he has built
some seriously cool pieces of furniture and shadowboxes, too. The very first thing he made for me was the window shadowbox to hold my wedding bouquet and bridal portraits. It's one of my most prized possessions.
He used scrap lumber from his grandfather's porch swing to create the red shadowboxes. I painted the red table and distressed it to look old. We make a pretty good team! :)
He doesn't use any plans to build things, but another Hometalker asked for plans for his tables in the coffee table post, so here is a little tutorial I wrote on how he created the hinged window shadowbox table: http://unskinnyboppy.blogspot.com/2008/09/tu...
