Using A Large Vintage Window As A Wall Partition In An Antique Shop

Mirror, Mirror On The Wall:
Hanging On A Window Wall

Are you short on wall space in your antique shop and looking for a clever way to "make a wall" ?
Well here is yet another clever idea from Tree House Antiques and Art in Canton, Connecticut.

Picking Up An Old Window On The Side Of The Road

Peter has used up all his wall space (and floor space) at Tree House Antiques, so he picked up a huge window (at the side of the road) and converted it to become a wall partition.

Covering The Window With A Lace "Curtain"

He covered the huge vintage window with a pretty lace curtain and is using it as a wall . A sweet vintage vanity table is placed in front of the "wall" and a charming mirror is hung on the (window) all.

Two Sides To This Wall Partition

But here is the beauty of this idea. Peter has actually created two walls when he uses the window as a wall partition. One side is in front of the vanity and hold a mirror, while the other side of the "wall" is a place for hanging pictures.
