I was having some painting one and adding hardware here and there in the kitchen and asked the guys if they could open up the painted-shut transom and they said yes. So I went over to House of Antique Hardware and grabbed a transom latch and chain in polished nickel (and ordered some new matching hinges as well which have yet to arrive) and now the window is almost complete - and open!
Don't know why I'm so excited about it, but I think it has to do with how seldom we see working transoms anymore - in old houses anyway. All the newly-built houses, I've noticed, seem to have transoms now. It's "all the rage."
Anyone else have an old transom they fixed up or are thinking of fixing up? I want to see more pictures...it's amazing how hard they are to find online!
