Repurposed Window Cabinet

I got this 4 pane old style casement latch window from a local barn renovation project. It was going to be thrown out. I turned the window upside down, removed the sill and replaced it with a barn wood top. I extended the jambs then lined the inside of the window in repurposed barn wood and added a barn wood back. The exterior is milk painted and waxed, the interior is wipe on poly. The light source is a magnetic puck light that runs off of 3 AAA batteries. It will have a shelf in the middle, debating glass or wood shelf, leaning towards wood.

Very nice job!! Any time a peice of wood can be saved from the dump that is a real plus.

NICE re-purpose of the old window. And if you want that light to show anything put on the bottom shelf, then the middle shelf needs to be glass.

Quite impressive. I agree with joein10asee in that if you will likely want to have the bottom part lit up as well, to keep the balance, so you’ll need glass. I have replace the wood shelves on several of my cupboards which have a light on the top, so as to have the entire cupboard lit.
