Before/After Leaded Glass Windows

My sister drove to Chicago to buy these leaded glass windows from a woman who had posted them on Ebay.  There were 2 sizes of windows and she came home with both.  She decided she could only use one set and gave the other set to me.  

I jumped up and down and was so excited about them. I could not believe that she was willing to hand them over to me.  And then once they were in my possession, I thought about what I could do with them.   

I cleaned the windows with Mrs. Myers window cleaner. If you have not tried it before, I recommend it.  It does not leave streaks behind and smells quite pleasant, it has a lavendar scent.  I love this stuff and use it on all of our windows, mirrors and glass surfaces.  I gave the wood a good cleaning with Murphy's Oil Soap and then used Old English around the frame of the window.  I think they turned out quite well.  

I absolutely know what I am doing with this set of windows now. It may take me a while to get this project under way though.  When we remodel the kitchen, I would like to have a cabinet above the refrigerator to put my glassware in.  The windows will be the perfect cabinet door to also show my hobnail collection.   Thanks Sis!  😉
