There is a wonderful place here in Portland called "The Rebuilding Center"
The Center carries the region’s largest volume of used building and remodeling materials. It provides resources that make home repairs affordable to everyone, with the goal of promoting the reuse of salvaged and reclaimed materials.
Three hundred visitors come to The Rebuilding Center every day to browse the ever-changing inventory that includes sinks, tubs, tile, lumber, doors, windows, trim and much more.
It is a non-profit "green" Organization where all the materials are donated and the money goes into the community. Items sell for 70%-90% off their original value!
They have tons of old windows right now...many of them came from a 1920's school building.
My daughter bought a large one with 30 panes..for only $1 a pane.
She is going to use it for a large photo collage...it rests against her wall in her 1920"s apartment!
I found a wonderful window too...and this is what i did with it!
I just love it!
It serves as my "Kitchen Communication Center".
I just use the "white board" markers and an eraser.
This one sold for $2 a pane...so it cost me only $4.00!
It was already painted red... I just distressed it a bit more.
I added the little black shelf underneath to hold the marker and eraser.
(I think I am going to distress that too)
My husband hung it with heavy duty "eye screws" and "S" hooks.
It adds to the look.
Find an old discarded window...and you too will have an instant wipe-off board...
