Window Salvage

Do you ever make something and just can't help smiling when you are done? That is how it was with this project.. I painted random pieces of scrap wood, trim pieces, pallet wood and Bri Waxed the window frame with light brown. The scrap wood and the window frame were free :).
I wasn't sure how much I needed, just painted what I thought might work. None of the scrap pieces I had were long enough to go across the whole window so I knew I would have to cut them into sections.
The next thing I had to decide was how to attach the wood to the very narrow interior window strips. This problem led to the happy solution of running the wood in opposite directions. I used the nail gun to attach the pieces, had to shoot straight and did miss you a few, but only a few.
This really is a relatively simple project and so fun to see it come together!

    This is a great idea! I have several old windows and a large stack of what used to be wooden window blind slats. I can't make myself throw that stack away....even with my husband complaining! I've been looking for something colorful and different for my mantle, this might just be it! Thanks so much for sharing!!
