Let's Get Started
To reduce the risk of injury user must read instruction manuals for all tools used in this project. Wear eye and respiratory protection. Use clamps to support work piece whenever practical.
Remove glazing on long, straight areas of the window using the Dremel Multi-Max with the MM452 blade. To remove glazing in curved or tight spaces, use a Dremel Rotary Tool with the 115 high-speed cutter. Once glazing is removed, you can either re-glaze or remove the pane of glass altogether. Tip: Work with both tools at a medium speed. If you chose to remove the pane of glass, be careful to watch out for any existing nailing holding the pane into place- as they can be sharp. Wear gloves when working on this project.
Remove paint on flat expanses of the window using the Dremel Multi-Max with the MM70P Sanding Sheet. Use a rotary tool equiped with a Flapwheel sanding accessory to remove paint in areas that are more difficult to access.
Paint the sanded frame. Once the paint is dry, drill pilot holes into the frame in areas where you would like to hang your pots. Finger-tighten screw hooks into your piloted holes. Tip: You can stand the frame upright on your counter, mount it to a wall, or hang it from the ceiling. Here, we hung the window using a galvanized cable looped around screw hooks fixed to each corner of the window frame.
