About This Project

I really don't know where I got the inspiration for this shelf. We went to a primitive collections store a couple of weeks ago and I found this cool window off of a 1920's house. A couple of issues you run into with this is: 1. Windows from this time used leaded paint to paint there windows, so make sure when you sand you are in a well ventilated area. 2. Finding a window with no broken glass. Once you get all this the it's pretty easy to build. This is pretty much a backwards version of the media shelf with the door up top and the shelf on the bottom

Estimated Time Investment: 
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Beginner
Type of Wood: 
Pine and old window
Finish Used: 
Glidden primer/paint Teal and Glidden primer/paint off white
clips

I really love this display

I really love this display case! I love vintage stuff and this kind of things mean a lot to me. I`ve seen on trade show display booths some vintage cabinets and display cases and I ordered one for the bathroom and one for the hallway. I can`t wait for them to arrive!

Type of Equipment

I have alot of equipment that I have collected over time. I mainly use my table saw to rip and my chop saw for the big cuts. I always use eye protection and ear protection when I am working.
