I saw a "window table" while I was driving by a yard sale. I found it to be interesting. I don't know how useful it would be other than for decoration. The flat part of the table was an old window with multiple panes in it. The legs were four patio columns which were affixed to the window.

I have some windows I am going to do this with, but I might just use regular lumber for the four legs. I looked at the prices at Lowes for these wooden patio columns, and I would not pay over $100 for four patio columns to do this project, but I am going to tweak it and use something else for the legs of the table.

I saw a similar table at a craft store and fell in love with the idea. My thought about less expensive legs is to check yard sales and second hand stores for old tables or chairs with interesting legs and recycle them for this project. Good luck! Donna

Here is a photo of a coffee table I made out of a window. I left the panes in, put in some old items, then bought a piece of plastic for the top. I bought some legs at a Menard's store.

I did the same thing for our condo in Cabo San Lucas.

I also leave some space and tell our guests/renters that they can add to it if they want.

There is a notebook on it and everyone writes what they added, when and what it meant to them.

I have memories and treasures every time I look at it!
