Recycled Patio Coffee Table

In my bio, I talk about my latest project being the remodeling of my tiny guesthouse I recently moved into. So far, I haven't blogged much about that, and I realized it's time to bring that into the conversation.

I love stained glass, and all things antique. So when furnishing my new yard, what better way to express myself than with an old window? I got this at a flea market for ten bucks, then bought legs at the hardware store for about thirty dollars. I decided to scrape off some of the flaking paint from the sill, but left it purposely rustic. I painted the legs and attached them to the frame of the old window. The final step is to order a piece of clear glass to cover the top. I'm using this as a coffee table in the middle of my yard, with a wrought iron love seat as seating.

Do you have an inventive use of an item as furniture, or homemade or hand-upholstered items in your home? Tell me about it in a comment below.
