One of a kind window table

So, I ran across this suitcase stand on the curb one day.  I wasn't sure what I would do with it, but I liked the legs.
The ribbons were in rough shape.  As you can see, one of them was ripped all the way through.  I cut the rest of the ribbons then took out all the tacs that held them in place.

I thought and thought about what to do with this stand.  Should I turn it into a bench?  If so, would it be strong enough to hold someone? 
So, down to the basement she went.  Then one day, I set it aside and a thought came to me.  I have this old window that would fit nicely on top...

We went to work on putting it together.  First it needed holes drilled through the rails that would hold the window.  Then I added the screws and pushed them through enough that they would mark the window where we needed to drill.
Then drilled where the marks were to get the screws in easily.  Yes, the one side of the window is white.  After that we put them together.

Some of the edges of the window that were not exposed were lighter than the rest so I added some stain to darken them.  I liked the rustic look so I decided not to paint the whole thing.


And there you have it.  Something new out of somethings old.

  1. I love this! I also like the legs and it's something I would also be drawn to. And with the glass top the legs aren't hidden.
    I'll be on the lookout for one of these now!
