I found a really big
stained glass window at the side of the road this week (crafting jackpot!), and I'm having a bit of trouble deciding what to do with it. My first thought was to make a table out of it, but it's really heavy - I'm just guessing, but probably around 40kg (about 90lb) - and the wood is pretty old, and doesn't feel too stable.
Here's the whole thing. It's about 75.5cm x 106.0cm (29.75" x 42.0"). The clear center glass is 74.0cm x 41cm (29.25" x 16.5"). The small Squares are 9.0cm x 9.0cm (3.5" x 3.5"). The long rectangles are 30.5cm x 9.0cm (1'0" x 3.5"). And the short rectangles are 14.0cm x 9.0cm (5.5" x 3.5"). The colours look much prettier in the light.
And here's a picture of the detail on the center panel. It's still a bit hard to see, but there's a floral pattern on it.
I'm going to strip the paint for sure, but that's as far as I can decide on.
Any thoughts? Thanks!
