Window Dressing

I love to dress up old window sashes with yummy, scrappy wood.  Each one is unique and has a personality all its own.  Here is my latest window dress up:
Some color and wax slapped on various scrap wood pieces,
Some fabulous original crackled paint on the window frame,
and some hooks added to make it functional.

  1. I really like this idea, but I'm always concerned about lead paint chipping off. How many coats of varnish do you put on to prevent this from happening? Thanks!
