    I would repurpose the window in a garden . You can attach a window box and plant with flowers based on your growing season.

    You could turn it into a cold frame box like @Barb Rosen did when she added a greenhouse to her home made from old windows. http://www.hometalk.com/10197547/repurposed-windows-greenhouse Another idea, that is not what you asked for, but the first thing I thought of would be spray the back side with Krylon's Looking Glass spray paint to turn it into a full length mirror for inside your home. It could be hung on the wall using french cleats or add a backing to give it added strength and lean it against the wall.

    I just read Janet's idea and realized she said basically the same thing as a cold frame box for growing plants in.

    Put mirror in each panel and hang it on an exterior wall behind a garden or on a fence.

    Hang on your porch or deck and paint it like stained glass for a divider or privacy.

    PAINT IF YOU ARE HANDY AT PAINTING OR RUB ONS OR DECALS OR EVEN STINCEL EACH PANEL AND DISPLAY IN THE YARD.

    Mount it on your porch with a windowbox under it. Plant seasonal flowers or vines, if the weather permits. Personally I would keep the 'Old' look, even to the point of distressing or using Annie Sloan paint. If your window box is big enough you can decorate with pumpkins and corn in the fall, beautifully wrapped Christmas boxes and a little bling in December and, if you entertain and have an event that honors someone, put their pictures in the individual panes, quotes in the other! Let your imagination fly and enjoy the window! lots of possibilities!
