Old windows

I have been looking for some old wood windows for awhile now. I check at yard sales, on Craigslist, antique stores, etc, etc, etc. I finally found a great deal on Craigslist yesterday and couldn't resist buying them all! There are 4-4 paned windows and 2-8 paned windows. Two of the windows have cracked glasss, but I am sure that won't be a problem. They also need to be cleaned up a bit-but these are old, antique windows we're talking about here people!
The guy that I bought them from has more stuff to go through in his barn. I told him if he has anything else like this that he wants to get rid of, to call me. He said okay...so now I am waiting for him to call me to tell me he has more goodies for me!

There are so many ideas swirling around in my head for these windows-a table, a shelf, wall hangings, etc, etc, etc. Do you have any great ideas for me? I'd love to hear them!

hi I bought a whole bunch of old windows 5 or 6 years ago. my original intention was to make a big greenhouse out of them but my hubby said since it would be too hard too because their all different sizes and shapes it'll be a challenge,anyway I have a vision in my mind for these windows as I love them,in fact I love anything old
