Leaded Glass Window Shelf

 My friend Karlye brought me this window when she came to pick up her vintage desk a short time ago. She had purchased the window in November and wanted to make a shelf out of it. I thought that sounded like an excellent plan! So we picked colors out and I went to work.

I had Eric cut the shelf and then he attached it for me. The window had previously been painted a few different colors. Purple was even under there somewhere! So I set to work with some Duck Egg. Then painted over that with Graphite. Distressed it. Waxed it with dark aging wax. 

 Added some dark grey pulls I had lying around to pretty it up a bit. 
And it was done!

(Except for hanging it on MY wall and staging it a bit for pictures. I finally got that done last night. And then promptly took it down so I wouldn't tempted to pay her for the window and keep it!)
I love the Graphite with the leaded glass. I think it looks very classy. 

Hope she loves it too!  

Everyone loves a good party!
