I started with the two pieces of glass and then using 1X4 pine, I built two frames. It was a very simple construction with no mitred corners. I used the table saw to incorporate a 1/4" groove in the back so that the glass would lay flat/flush in the back of the wood frame.
I stained the frames using Dark Walnut Danish Oil. When dry, I applied two coats of "Ice Blue" by DecoArt. The color was just a bit too light, so I repainted them with my new favorite paint color that I had mixed to match my fabric used for the patio furniture pillows.
Once that coat dried, I lightly sanded each frame with 220-grit sandpaper revealing the lighter shade of Ice Blue. I also sanded a little heavier around the inside and outside edges to reveal the dark stain.
Once everything was dry, I inserted the glass panels and secured them to the frame. Using the same "great" blue paint, I painted the diamond in the middle of each glass panel...two coats on the front and two coats on the back.
I secured screw eyes to the top of each frame and then attached gold chain to the screw eyes. I used gold chain to bring out the gold leading in the window panels. I secured the window frames to my fence with more screw eyes. I think the windows help "dress up" this old, weathered privacy fence. It's a grey and gloomy day, so the colors aren't as vibrant as they should be, but I hope you can get an idea.
Here is a picture of all the the furniture pieces together. I had alot of fun building everything...thanks to the great plans from Ana White!
I still have a few more projects to go and will share them with you as I complete them. Thank you for stopping by and taking a look. I enjoy your visits and your great comments! Have a great weekend!!
