window panes

well let me tell you- i've got lots of window panes over here. we used them as decorations for our wedding and hung a bunch of them over the dance floor during our reception.

i'm pretty sentimental and would love to keep them and do something fun with them. i would really like to turn some of them into a headboard, but i sill have way more just sitting around my house.

so what did i do? turn to pinterest of course... here are some really fun ideas!

one and two are my own pics!

three // four // five // six // seven // eight

too many great ideas! where do i begin?? do you have any window pane suggestions?
