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...
I don't think these grass EVER go fully dormant, so spraying a non-selective weedkiller like Roundup on the weeds is not a good idea. But it's easy to make a weed wiper to kill the offenders without hurting the lawn.

These surfaces can be made out of ANY substance. . . drywall, MDF, trim moldings, plywood, previously painted cabinets, etc. I can match ANY wood species in ANY color.
These photos are almost like a game of "Where's Waldo". Try to guess what is the REAL wood and what is the PAINT. The answers are on the captions. If you don't believe me, I will gladly send you the before photos. Have fun.
