We took in a trip to the Yellowstone Park area a couple years ago and the wife bought a calendar which she hoped to frame a couple of the pictures as a reminder of the trip. I found an old basement storm window and used it! First I carefully remove the old glass then take the frame apart. It is then repaired where necessary and glued back together. (Some of these old window frames wouldn’t support their own weight after awhile, so they need to be glued.) I replaced the glass panels, seating them in place with clear silicone. Topcoat with satin poly and get paid in cookies!

Nice Upcycling. Sounds like a good payment as well. Good to see some projects from you.
