rotting wood frame
first, there is the gigantic picture window in the front room -
it's over six feet square.
we were debating making it into a bow window...buuut since we just bought the custom-fitted shade for it, i think we'll be sticking with the picture window.
these glass-block windows are also in the front room.
please ignore the torchiere lamp collection.
they were free and we've been using them as task lighting when we paint at night.
i'm not sure what design plans we have for them,
other than replacing them with newer blocks.
they look a bit crusty.
there is another glass block window in the dining-room-turned-workspace:
here's yet another glass block window in the stairwell to the second floor...
it's turned on its side to form a diamond shape, which i love.
we want to put decorative glass in this one.
this is the window as seen from the upstairs hallway...
stained glass or some sort of glass mosaic shining colored
light patterns down the hall would be SO PRETTY!
last in the parade of odd windows in our home,
is this cute little octagon window in our master bedroom:
we're going to keep the octagon -- but we want to add two vertical bars to form a grid-type pattern in the window.
we've only had one estimate so far and came away a bit shell-shocked at the cost. we'd like to do the whole house in one go, but we may end up having to first buy windows for the front of the house, then do the back of the house after we've saved up more money.
