The window I used for the copper shop room box was one that I found at a garage sale many years ago and did not contain any "glass"
This weekend, I added a thin piece of acrylic and some wood mullions to the interior. Initially, I was going to do individual pieces of glass, but then I decided to do one large piece and attache a wood grid to the back.
After I cut and sanded all of the pieces of wood, I stained all of the surfaces.
Here is the window and grid glued in place.
I constructed a cover out of wood that will house the roller shade.
I am still working on the placement of the items in the shop (below)
I have picked up a few discontinued fabric sample books here and there
I selected one that was cream colored with copper pin stripes and cut off the zigzag edges
Once I had the fabric cut to the correct width, I glued it to a wooden tooth pick
While that was drying, I applied some glue to the wooden box and applied fabric over it.
Here is the finished window treatment box
Here is the shade and the box. Note that I left the paper backing on fabric and the zigzag edge on one side.
I attached a small copper colored chain in place with hot glue, then added the rolled up fabric shade. The shade is non-functional, but I wanted it to look real from all angles, including looking into the shop from the outside.
Here is a view of the shade attached in place
