Framed Glass as Decor

Framed Glass as Decor

Here’s an interesting idea: framed glass as decor. We like the way it reflects light and showcases a frame. A great use for your old doors and windows and a neat way to upcycle common flea market finds.

Very inspiring. I am also a big fan of the idea of making a tea/coffee/breakfast tray out of a frame: you simply attach handles and choose something fun for the bottom layer such as a vintage cloth, picture, etc. DIY is great!
