Flea Market Flip

Do any of you watch HGTV's Flea Market Flip?  I love that show!  So many clever ideas.........
It was while watching one of the episodes that my husband and I saw one set of contestants turn an old window into a wall cabinet.
 I told my husband that I liked that idea and that I had an old window (hidden under a guest bed of all places) that would be perfect for the project.  Well, the next day he got to work and surprised me with the cabinet almost completed!
 He used pine tongue and groove to build the cabinet box and dividers that section off the interior.  A fresh coat of bright white makes the inside really pop.  (I did have to stop him from painting over the original paint on the window though!)  
Today he attached the hinges on the top and a magnetic closure and brought the finished cabinet in from his workshop in the barn.  It is securely hung on the wall so I can load it with some of my favorite items.  It hangs in the corner of our bedroom and looks so cool.  My husband is really talented and now that he is retired he finally has the time to get creative!  And I am getting so many of my wished for projects done!
