Architectural Salvage


of old windows,

decorative and 'convertible' into interesting mirrors

waiting to be mirrored

These large steel window frames are already very heavy without the mirror glass,
and when goodness!
Loading, transporting, fixing them to not very solid exhibition-stand walls...and...and...
Not easy to handle - mildly spoken.

But - I just love them!


It was definitely easier to 'deal' with this

  1. Bonjour, Karin! I love the mirrored windows! If I ever build a house, I'd love steel window frames!


  2. Gorgeous pictures! I'd sure hate to move these, but once in beautiful! The demilune window frame is my favorite! Thanks so much for sharing!!!!!

  3. Hello Martha,
    Welcome to my blog!

    Yes, the demi-lune one was also my favorite one.

    Thank you very much for your visit and comment.
