How would you use this?

This is a palladian style window, but doesn't have to be used this way! What would you do with it? It is fairly large.

Could add plywood and padding and make a unique headboard.

I love it just the way it is! What about hanging it over a long buffet, hang a round framed mirror in the center and add tall buffet lamps to each end of the buffet. Stunning find!

I would put mirror behind it and hang it over a sofa or buffet.

If you have the space that will handle a piece this size your options are only limited by your imagination.

I would paint it white, "weather it" and hang it on the wall. Or paint it black...would look cool on the wall over a bed without a headboard.

Put it outside, both ends in the ground as a rustic trellis arch and grow morning glories on it.

I think using it as a trellis would be beautiful but I would hate to see it " out in the elements" any longer! Bring it inside.

Many years ago I was in a junk/antique shop and saw "The crawling man" as I call him. I asked the owner how much he cost and he said " Lady, if you want that thing you can have it". It's always been one of my favorite pieces! I'm not sure where it came from but it's a conversation piece and I LOVED the price!

HI -- I would NOT turn it into anything else . I would hang it - AS - IS behind the sofa or over a long console or buffet . It would look fantastic if it hung on an old brick wall or in a loft space . It would be the perfect thing to have on one of those big useless ledges they have in 2 storey foyers or that big empty on top of the closet in one of those big foyers. Love It ! !
