Garden Window - Cabbage Key

This is an old window my husband brought home from a building he was working on. I had seen recycled windows before that were painted on so I decided to use some of my jewelry supplies I had stored away along with glass paint. It was alot of fun making this. I have had it hanging in my garden for the last couple of yrs. E6000 glue is the best as it does not expand or contract in the heat or the cold.

Re: Garden Window - Cabbage Key

Hi there. Thanks for your reply. Do you mean adding a light? It hangs outside in the summer and when the sunlight shines on it it takes on a whole new look which is better for sure.

I love this - haven't ever seen one like it either. What part of the country do you live - I live in Southern California - do you think a design like this would hold up to 110 degree heat?

I apologize for not answering your post sooner.I was just looking back on my previous posts and saw yours. It will withstand your heat in California just fine. The only problem I have had is the below freezing temperatures here in Canada makes the paint peel away from the glass so I have to hang it in the house for the winter. In the summer we get very hot summers and I have this window hanging on my garage which gets direct south facing sun. Be sure to use E6000 glue as it does not contract or expand in the heat or cold.
