Old Window Makeover

Here's what I started with. I found 5 of these old windows at a yard sale for only $2 each.
  I knew I either wanted to make mirrors out of them or display racks like I've seen in a few craft blogs.
Well, I went with the display racks because I need some more display room in my Peddlers Mall booth.
 I very carefully knocked out the glass in two of them by putting the windows down inside of a big ole cardboard box. A very skinny one. The wicker table had came in it and it was perfect. I then hit on the sides of the box with a rubber hammer until all the glass was pretty much broken out. This way the glass didn't fly around and I didn't have a mess to clean up afterwards either.
 Next, I put some chicken wire on the backside of them both. I stapled it on with a big ole staple gun from Lowes. Then I stenciled on the "Primitive" saying at the top. On one of them I cut some fabric and added a little curtain to make it more country. The other I left plain. And that's the one I like best.
And here it is. I use those metal "S" hooks to hang items on these in my booth. They save me alot of space and look so cute for displaying about anything!
