Transoms, transoms and more transoms

We have six interior and two exterior transoms. All of them have been boarded-up or painted over. We are re-building all of them and tracking down interesting windows to insert into the spaces.

 

 

We are trying to decide what type to install on the six interior transoms. Plain glass? Stained glass?

We took a trip to the Vintage Hardware Store in Astoria (great place btw) (https://www.facebook.com/astoriavintagehardware/). There we found a set of cabinet doors with leaded glass that we thought would work for our transoms. Unfortunately, they were too large.

 

 

We may have to go with some custom made stained/leaded glass inserts. Fortunately, there are a few stained glass places in Astoria!

As far as outside doors go… I found some photos online of beautiful Victorian style doors with transoms. Would these work? Build these ourselves? Stay tuned.
