Sometimes hoarding pays off. Having housed* these pre-WWII windows for well over a decade, I am just now exploring their potential use for a large scale work. No, it won’t be “shabby chic”. I will try bring back some aesthetic dignity to what once was standard utility.
* Housed, as in, stored outside where the elements are helping me remove the paint (a loose outer layer covering a super-tenacious bottom one), down past what is probably the original glazing, hardened by winter and chipping off somewhat easily.
