Most I’d pay is $20.00 because condition of the wood. But if you clean it up and repurpose it for décor hanging, maybe $50.00. Clean it up and put mirrors in it instead of cork board, for décor maybe $100 to $200.00.

How would you clean such old wood and maintain the continuous reclaimed look

Also, I could definitely put some mirrors in but where does one get said mirrors for cutting to size and using for this?

Buy a mirror at a bargain or salvage store and cut it to size just like you would cut glass. It is easy.

I would not sell the item until I checked the lead content of the paint that is flaking off and took appropriate safety measures. You might get yourself in trouble.

Patrick – don’t be dismayed by the Archetechorialy Challenged.
check out what you can do with Repurposed Vintage Windows
[try to snag one of them Designer Pickers from New York City].

as I said = 50 ~ $300.00 if you can find an interior designer that appreciates original
barn find items that can be incorporated into their projects.
as stated: ensure it is lead free paint – and proceed from there.
what you have now is a nice old window frame. the fillers in the pane areas
are not appropriate. let the buyer put in there own fillers . . . such as family photos, etc.
good luck

So will I get sued if someone gets sick from having one of my sashes around?

Was something wrong with the glass? What I did with something similar was I picked one up at an architectural salvage place for $100 that was a nice dark stained mahogany. I waxed it with briwax to even out the old finish and bought spray can “mirror” finish, and made a really cool decorator piece that my wife would have probably paid $200-250 for.

The glass was fine I took it out for the chalkboard. Are you proposing spraying some panes with that spray?

Have your say...
